Last week, we wrote about a bet between Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams on the NBA playoff series between the Raptors and the Nets, and the issue of making sure the bet got paid in spite of Ford's troubles with the rocks.

Well, this week we have a wager that hits a little closer to home.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. put up the best of their respective boroughs in a friendly little wager on the four-game Subway Series.

Should the senior citizens on the Yankees find a way to stay up past 6:30 p.m and actually make most of the games and actually win, Diaz will be receiving a platter of sandwiches from Leo's Latticini, better known as Mama's of Corona, and pastries from Omonia Cafe in Astoria.

Now, should the Mets win, Katz will be receiving a sampler pack of Kool-Aid from Pathmark and three different kinds of burritos from 7-Eleven.

Just kidding Bronx, we love ya! (Yikes, good thing we're not distributed there!)

Actually, should the Mets win, Katz will be the recipient of a sample tray of empanadas from Babalu on East Tremont Road (yum!) and a dozen cannoli from Egidio Pastry shop in the borough's Little Italy.

May the best team win!
