LAPD Police Chief and Chicago Police Superintendent Bet on Dodgers Vs. Cubs

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck and Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson have made a friendly wager on the upcoming playoff series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs.

The battle for the National League Championship will come down to more than just baseball victory and bragging rights for the winning team's fans.

If the Dodgers win, Superintendent Johnson will be sending Al's Italian Beef sandwich from Al's Chicago.

If the Cubs win, Chief Beck will be sending lunch from Langer's Delicatessen-Restaurant, featuring their world-famous hot pastrami considered to be the best anywhere.

At stake are more than just which team is better and will head to the World Series later this month. It's about which city has the most beloved food.

Chief Beck previously made a similar bet with former New York Police Department Commissioner William J. Bratton.
