Houston, Atlanta mayors enter friendly World Series bet

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms are entering a friendly wager to support their baseball teams ahead of the World Series. 

In a post on Instagram, Turner joined Lance Bottoms talking about the game and the wager.

"I'm so sorry you're going to have to lose this World Series, but I still love you to the moon and back," Bottoms said.

Bottoms said, if the Astros win, Turner would have to wear an Atlanta Braves hat and jersey. She would send Turner some unique Atlanta food and beverages, including peach cobbler from Paschal's, a case of Coca-Cola, beer from Best End Brewery, and a hammer from The Home Depot in honor of Hank Aaron.

"I love Houston, I love Mayor Turner … but I'm not rooting for Houston this time," Bottoms said.
