The excitement around the Toronto Blue Jays continues as our major league baseball team begins the second round of the playoffs tonight.
The Jays open the best of seven American League Championship Series in Kansas City against the Royals.
“Congratulations on making it this far Mayor Tory and the Toronto Blue Jays, but we have a wager for you,” said Kansas City Mayor Sly James.
“We will send you a selection of three different restaurants, barbecue restaurants, of ribs and their sauces, so you can have that for your staff and whoever else wants to do it. I wouldn’t start getting your knives and forks out just yet because we plan to win this thing,” James said cheekily.
As for what the Kansas City mayor would like should the Royals win the series, James said slyly, “I will warn you in advance, we have our own maple syrup, so something else maybe!”
Toronto Mayor John Tory has yet to officially respond to the wager, but he has announced that he will send Mayor James some “real” Canadian syrup so he can drown his sorrows with it.
