Gavin Newsom, gamblin' man
San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and Arlington Mayor Dr. Robert Cluck have announced their good-natured wager on the pending World Series. And it's pretty unspectacular. I just read the article five minutes ago and I can't even remember all the details. That's how unspectacular. Here are some bets we'd have remembered:

  • If Texas wins, Cluck, an OB/GYN, gets to use Newsom's image on his practice's publicity materials. That's right -- the real-life version of the old Saturday Night Live skit, "Mel Gibson, Dream Gynecologist." If the Giants win, Cluck fills the city's vacant Director of Public Health position.

  • Two words: Wife-swapping

  • If Texas wins, Newsom has to wander through Arlington in full cowboy regalia greeting everyone he meets by stating "I'm Gavin Newsom and I'm a cowboy. Howdy, howdy, howdy." Should the Giants win, Cluck does the same -- through the Castro.

  • Loser gets Chris Daly

  • If Giants lose, Newsom forced to run San Francisco on Arlington's budget for a week. If Giants win, Cluck forced to listen to public commentors at Board of Supervisors meetings. But just for a day. Let's be humane.

Dr. Bob -- not the Muppet but the mayor
  • Urine swap from Muni and Arlington's public transit system

  • If Giants win, Dan Noyes must interview Mayor Cluck. If Giants lose, Noyes will stay three days and two nights in Newsom's home.

  • Too simple. Both men like the gel. Loser gets a flat-top.

  • Should San Francisco win, Cluck most pose for photo-op with Nancy Pelosi. Should Rangers prevail, Newsom will take the more politically palitable path of literally eating shit.
