Mayors of two Maldens made a friendly wager on the title at stake between the Cardinals and the Red Sox.
In Missouri, Malden Mayor Ray Santie said it all started when Gary Christenson sent him an email from his city of the same name near Boston to make a bet on this year’s World Series.
Santie said when the Cardinals win Mayor Christenson will be sending his city a shipment of New England Coffee.
If the Red Sox win, Santie agreed to send Missouri grown rice and purple hull peas to Massachusetts.
Apparently a jersey wearing swap may also come into play.
“He suggested we wear the other teams jersey but I’m not even sure you can find a Red Sox jersey around here,” laughed Santie. “I think he’ll be wearing the birds on the bat.”
