GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A Seattle Seahawks fan is trying to smooth things over with Wisconsin after the disputed touchdown call that decided Monday night's Packer game.

Rudy McCoy-Pantoja Jr., a landscaper in Seattle, says he wanted to send local beer, smoked salmon and kringles to Green Bay's mayor, but Jim Schmitt wouldn't accept it.

His office says the mayor doesn't participate with gift exchanges during the regular season.

So McCoy-Pantoja Jr. put his finger on his globe to find a different Wisconsin city and decided on Delavan in southeastern Wisconsin.

Delavan Mayor Mel Nieuwenhuis agreed to exchange gifts. He plans to send six or 12-pack of Miller High Life, cheese and fresh venison he hunted himself.

McCoy-Pantoja tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette someone needed to be positive on this story.
