World Series bets and beats

The World Series is still a few days away, but that hasn’t stopped politicians from getting involved. If the Yankees win, Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand will get a supply of Philadelphia cheesesteaks; and if the Phillies win, Sens. Arlen Specter and Robert Casey will get some cheesecakes from Junior’s. Not bad on either side.

In a more philanthropic wager, there’s also this: If the Yankees lose, New York City’s Hunts Point Terminal Market will donate a truckload of local produce to a Philadelphia food bank. If the Phillies lose, the Philadelphia Regional Produce Market will send food to a New York City food bank. Now that’s a bet I like.

Lastly, word is that Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will perform “Empire State of Mind” before Game 1 at the Stadium. If the song sounds familiar, it’s because it is – Derek Jeter chose it as his walk-to-the-plate music.
