GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.- Grand Rapids Mayor George Heartwell and Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner have offered each other a challenge during the Calder Cup Finals.

Mayor Heartwell sent a letter to Miner’s office reading in part, ” I have heard of your challenge and I do choose to accept it. (Why not, it will be easy!) I agree to send you and your staff a case of Grand Rapid’s own Founders Brewery beer and wear a Syracuse Crunch jersey to a public event in the HIGHLY unlikely event the Griffins do not welcome home the Calder Cup.”

The Griffins take on the Crunch in Game 5 at Van Andel Arena starting at 7:00pm Saturday. The Griffins are ahead in the best of 7 series, 3-1.
