She and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett have made a friendly wager over the outcome of the NBA finals.

Whoever loses must wear the opposing team's jersey in public and send a package of local treats to the winner.

Mayor Gallego tweeted out a video saying she is confident the Suns will prevail.

“This is not a challenge for those weak of heart!” said Gallego. “We want to respectfully make the point that the winning city truly dominates this world-class competition.”

The mayors will settle-up immediately following the conclusion of the series.
