Its become a yearly ritual-the governors of the 2 states involved in the World Series make a bet on who will win.
Here’s what is involved in this year’s friendly wager.
Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is staking a 4-pack of Fitz’s Cardinal Cream Soda–a box of Bissinger’s Chocolates–and some baked goods from the Missouri Baking Company on The Hill.
Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts is putting up some New England Clam Chowder from Legal Sea Foods–baked goods from Dancing Deer Baking Company–and some Polar Beverages seltzers.
Governor Nixon says he’s also throwing in some Tums to help Governor Patrick get over the Cardinals victory over the Red Sox.
