Everybody LOVES some good old fashioned smack talk ... even politicians ... just ask the Mayor of Kansas City -- who's rippin' into the Mayor of Los Angeles over the MLB playoffs.
Of course, the Royals are taking on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim -- and K.C. Mayor Sly James is stickin' it to L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.
We spoke with Mayor James before the Royals beat the Angels last night -- here's how the conversation went ...
Mayor James: "I'll be reaching out to the Mayor of Los Angeles and making a bet with him."
TMZ Sports: Who will you bet on Mr. Mayor?Mayor James: "I'm always gonna bet on Kansas City ... and I'm gonna encourage him to do the same if he actually wants to win the bet."
TMZ Sports: What will you bet?Mayor James: "We'll bet some BBQ versus whatever he wants to put up."
TMZ Sports: Any final thoughts?Mayor James: "If he wants to be on the winning side of the bet, he ought to bet on the Royals. Save himself some trouble and heartache."
The Royals and the Halos face off again tonight -- obviously, James will be keeping a close eye on the game.
