When mayor Bill de Blasio makes a bet, he upholds the terms — no matter how humiliating they are.
The day the World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets began, Kansas City mayor Sly James and de Blasio set up a friendly bet on Twitter:
Hey @MayorSlyJames – up for a friendly #WorldSeries wager? @JuniorsCheeseck for some of your tasty BBQ?— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) October 27, 2015
@BilldeBlasio You bet!!! And a little KC culture? Love to hear you sing “Kansas City" when @Royals win. https://t.co/b110MVbKZs— Mayor Sly James (@MayorSlyJames) October 27, 2015
.@MayorSlyJames Loser in winner’s jersey, singing their song. Your dulcet tones pushing “New York, New York” in @Mets gear, that's #Frosty.— Bill de Blasio (@BilldeBlasio) October 27, 2015
@BilldeBlasio @Mets Let’s take it to the people where the culture’s at: Ballet school!— Mayor Sly James (@MayorSlyJames) October 27, 2015
Two weeks after the Royals clinched the World Series 4-1, de Blasio is keeping up his side of the bargain, with American Ballet Theatre students as his backup dancers.
