It's Game Day, Birds! The Commissioner's Trophy and a year's worth of bragging rights are at stake for the St. Louis Cardinals, and fans are finding ways to make the Fall Classic even more interesting.
We found politicians, radio stations and even churches who are wagering on the series. Here are six St. Louis v. Boston World Series bets:
1. The Governors - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick win the award for tastiest bet, though the loser still may not be able to stomach it. Nixon's ante? A four-pack of Cardinal Cream Soda from Fitz's Bottling company, a box of Bissinger's Chocolates and Italian pastries from Missouri Baking Company on the Hill. Patrick is wagering seltzers from Polar Beverages, the country's largest independent soft-drink bottler; New England clam chowder from Legal Sea Foods; and baked goods from Dancing Deer Baking Co.
