Mayor willing to lose L.A. Times in baseball wager with St. Louis mayor
For years, the mayoral sports wager has been a fixture of postseason professional sports.
So it was no surprise that with the Dodgers squaring off against the St. Louis Cardinals, L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa anted up with his counterpart, Francis Slay.
But those looking for high stakes may want to look elsewhere.
His honor's offering posted on Twitter includes Dodger Stadium garlic fries, a Manuel burrito and a case of Budweiser.
Slay counters with toasted ravioli, a Build-A-Bear animal and a Twitter T-shirt.
Villaraigosa also offered to give up the L.A. Times "if we lose the series."
