Much like the respective mayors of San Francisco and Arlington , the mayors of Philadelphia and St. Louis are betting on baseball.
This time, however, the wager is on delicious home-brewed beer rather than tasty hometown food. The losing mayor, as if his team getting tossed out of the playoffs isn't bad enough, will send locally-made beer to the winning mayor, who also gets to enjoy his team moving on to the NLCS.
Regardless of which ball club emerges victorious, Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter and St. Louis mayor Francis Slay announced Friday that they will each volunteer with Habitat for Humanity following the best-of-five series. Roy Halladay will take the hill against Kyle Lohse Saturday evening at 4:05pm ET for Game One of the NLDS in St. Louis.
