Mayoral Wagers And Playoff Baseball

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom was able to claim victory in a wager with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed following the Giants-Braves NLDS. Mayor Reed will have to hoist a Giants flag over Atlanta's City Hall thanks to the Giants playoff victory. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter won his wager in the Phillies-Reds series and the result was a donation of 2,000 books to the city of Philadelphia from a non-profit.

As the Giants and Phillies prepare for their upcoming battle in the NLCS, Mayor Newsom has promised a creative wager between the two cities. I'm thinking that when the Giants win, Philly needs to send over some Philly cheese steaks.
