Mayoral Wager on World Series -- Food at Stake

10/26/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Commissioner's Trophy isn't the only thing on the line when the Texas Rangers play the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 World Series -- two hometown mayors have each stepped up to the plate to make a serious bet on the outcome.

TMZ has learned ... San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom (right) and the mayor of Arlington, TX, Robert Cluck (left), have agreed to make a wager on the series.

Here's the deal -- each mayor has agreed that the loser will provide a day of community service in the winner's town while wearing a jersey of the winning team.

But there's more -- the losing mayor will also ship the winning mayor a bunch of delicious hometown goodies. If SF loses, Newsom has agreed to ship Dungeness crab, sourdough bread, Ghirardelli chocolate and Anchor Steam beer.

If Texas loses, Cluck has agreed to ship over BBQ food from a local joint called Spring Creek BBQ ... said to be the best in TX.

Game 1 is set for tomorrow night.

Interesting example of the former America - before it was CNN vs Fox...Dems vs. Repubs and nothing else.

Spring Creek the best? Seriously? It's okay at best. I know the owners and they are nice people, but you can find better. I agree with Melissa--you can find better from someone's backyard in South Dallas. Try Saltlick, Bonedaddy's or Pappa's if you're ever in Dallas and want a good sitdown dinner.

"a local joint called Spring Creek BBQ ... said to be the best in TX."

Not by a long shot. Spring Creek is a chain. It is ok, but light years away from the "best in Texas." South Texas (Lockhart) has the claim on that.

The Arlington mayor should throw in some Shiner Bock and the Cowboys.

Instead of Spring Creek BBQ, we should send them Tony Romo (and Jerry Jones as a bonus).
