October 26, 2015

(AP) – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon have made a friendly wager over the 2015 World Series matchup between the Mets and the Kansas City Royals.

If the Mets win, Gov. Jay Nixon will wear a Mets jersey to work for a full day. If the Royals win, Gov. Andrew Cuomo will do the same wearing a Royals jersey.

The bet also includes each governor sending to the other various home state-crafted food and spirits, including Kansas City ribs and hot Italian sausage from Central New York.

Also Today, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) and Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY), Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, announced they have placed a friendly wager on the World Series between the New York Mets and the Kansas City Royals.

If the Royals win, Crowley, who represents Citi Field, will provide Cleaver with Italian ice from the Lemon Ice King of Corona and heroes from Mama’s of Corona. If the Mets win, Cleaver will provide Crowley with a President’s BBQ Platter from Kansas City’s own Gates Bar-B-Q.

The first game of the best-of-seven series will be played in Kansas City on Tuesday.
