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.

I'm glad that the Giants are not playing the Yankees, SF sends them crabs and NY sends them bedbugs.

Spring Creek Sucks! I cannot believe they are saying that's the best in Texas, Pappa's is better, and they are a chain too. How embarassing, but it's not like anyone in California would know what good BBQ was anyway.

First off, I don't care about sports one bit, but I am so glad some of my fellow Texans came here to post. I almost laughed when I read Spring Creek BBQ. Spring Creek is a crappy chain - FAR from being the best BBQ in Texas. I'm a self-proclaimed BBQ snob and Spring Creek is passable at best. My husband smokes a brisket that blows Spring Creek out of the water. Dude shoulda put up Shiner & Rahr Star beer. That's laughable that we'd swap crappy chain BBQ for crab, good beer, San Fran sourdough & chocolate.

That's just fine if it's not the best BBQ. In fact, I hope it goes bad in transit and Newsome gets food poisoning. Yes . . . . I like Newsome that much.
