The bets are in: San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg have agreed to a friendly wager on Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

If the San Francisco 49ers win, Bloomberg will rename 49th Street in Manhattan "49ers Street" and send Lee a dozen New York Bagels. If the Giants win, Lee will outfit a Powell Street line cable car in New York Giants blue and red and send Bloomberg Boudin sourdough bread.

"49ers fever is sweeping our city and the entire Bay Area region, and we are so proud of our hometown team," Lee said. "So while I'm excited to make this bet with Mayor Bloomberg, we have no intention of losing."

The NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants will be played Sunday afternoon at Candlestick Park.
