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.

The only way I would eat Spring Creek BBQ is if I was going to a SCAT party and wanted to make a good impression.

Spring Creek??? It's not bad but it is definitely not the best in Texas. Arlington is definitely getting the better end of the deal with those yummy treats!

Smittys BBQ is the best in Texas. It is located in the BBQ capital of Texas, Lockhart.

Hey, don't worry Spring Creek's BBQ isn't only the nasty thing to offer, because SF mayor will send 3 week old dead Crabs to Texans.

Whichever wins, Rangers/Giants suck!

GO YANKEES!
