Because beer and baseball go hand in hand… and not just in the Boston clubhouse.
Philadelphia mayor Michael Nutter and St. Louis mayor Francis Slay have made a friendly wager on the results of their teams’ NLDS series.
Nutter is putting up beer from several local microbreweries against the St. Louis-based Budweiser being offered by Slay.
Which seems fair, given that the Phillies are overwhelming favorites in the series. Slay certainly wasn’t going to risk the good stuff.
On a more sober note, couldn’t the mayors have found another commodity to play up? The Cardinals had a pitcher die drunk driving four years ago, their manager has a DUI offense on his record and their play-by-play guy just got his second DWI over the weekend.
