SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The mayors of Kansas City and San Francisco have a bet riding on the outcome of the World Series.

If the Royals take the crown, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee will travel to Kansas City to read to students. If the Giants prevail, Kansas City Mayor Sly James will serve meals to the homeless in San Francisco and sing with a church musical group.

James says that Kansas City has waited 29 years for a World Series championship team and that “not even a Giant can stand in our way.” But Lee says that although Kansas City has been playing well, the Royals are no match for the Giants.
