To the Victor Go the Spoils

Well the ALDS is over and the White Sox have won the privilege to play the Angels in the AL Championship Series.  But what else was at stake?  A lot, apparently.  According to the Chicago Sun Times, politicians had some friendly bets going on.  Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich have won some goodies from their Boston cohorts since the Pale Hose defeated the Red Sox.  Blago will be sipping some Boston clam chowah and Daley will be treated to a lobster dinner.

Of course, it doesn’t stop there.  There is a bet between Mayor Daley and Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle.  Funny Pringle should even consider this since he just ended his boycott of attending Angels games just over a week ago because of the naming of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 

Anyway, here is what is on the line for the White Sox-Angels series:

Lou Malnati’s pizza; Lake Michigan fried perch from BJ’s Market and Bakery; Kasia’s Polish Deli pierogis, blintzes and potato pancakes; Comfort Cake poundcake; Gibsons Steakhouse USDA prime aged Midwest steaks; La Preferida products; Tuscany’s Italian beef sandwiches and sauces; Jay’s Potato Chips; Peking duck from Lao Sze Chuan; Ferrara Pan Lemonheads and Fireballs.

Anaheim chili peppers; Sunkist oranges; Disneyland’s 50th anniversary merchandise; autographed script from “The OC” TV show; surfboard and surf apparel; Cleveland Golf’s Halo Hybrid Utility Club; sunglasses and swimwear; Diedrich’s coffee; Knott’s Berry Farm boysenberry jam and Mrs. Knott’s chicken.
