NBC Sports Philadelphia accepts Chicago-based pizzeria's wager


You’re on, Lou Malnati's Pizzeria and we’re bringing our friends at Tommy D’s in Wyndmoor and Ambler with us.

This week, we posed a very important debate topic on social media. 

While there is no debate locally, Lou Malnati's Pizzeria, who consider themselves “the oldest family name in Chicago pizza,” took exception and issued a challenge.

With the help of Tommy D’s, we accepted.

Sports can bring out the best in our respective cities, so we’d be happy to wager cheesesteaks for deep dish pizza. If it’s anything like the wager we had last year with NBC Sports Boston, we’ll be grabbing a fork and knife and enjoying the fruits of Lou Malnati's Pizzeria’s labor.

The saying last year was “hungry dogs run faster,” and despite a trip down Broad Street with the Lombardi Trophy in hand, we’re still hungry.
