Not in Kansas (City) Anymore
Welcome back to your City by the Bay, Giants. In what is becoming a familiar and welcome even-year tradition, buildings across San Francisco – from City Hall to Coit Tower – are glowing in bright orange light to celebrate our National League Champions. Earlier this week I was pleased to announce the details of a friendly wager with Kansas City Congressman Emanuel Cleaver over the World Series between our San Francisco Giants and his Kansas City Royals. As passionate fans and competitive colleagues, Congressman Cleaver and I agreed to a battle for bragging rights and local delicacies.
If the Royals win, I will provide the Kansas City Congressman with a basket of the finest chocolates from San Francisco. If the Giants win, Congressman Cleaver will provide my office with some of Kansas City’s delicious BBQ.
There are many savory delights that Kansas City has to offer and I can’t wait to enjoy them, but nothing would be sweeter than a Giants victory. The Royals are a fine team, but they are no match for the talent, toughness, and heart of our never-say-die Giants. I look forward to enjoying the Giants’ latest championship with some fine Kansas City BBQ, and I wish the Giants luck as they bring the World Series home to San Francisco tonight for what is promising to be an exciting Game 3.
