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.

What a vile jerk. Mayor Cluck should know better than to stuff crap down the throat of Mayor Newsom. It's a very poor way to behave in fulfilling obligations of having lost a bet. It's sad to see Cluck send the wrong message about who Texans are, and the honor that they defend through the ethics of their choices. I'm very sorry to say this, however Spring Creek BBQ seriously blows armadillos. He could have sent BBQ from somewhere halfway decent, like Sonny Bryan's Smokehouse.
