Governors Bet On World Series Win

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The governors of New York and Missouri are betting on their teams in the World Series. Andrew Cuomo says he'd wear a Kansas City Royals jersey if his team loses. Missouri's Jay Nixon would wear a Mets jersey. Impressive, but nothing like Congressman Adam Schiff, who, earlier in the playoffs, promised to sing a Mets song if his Dodgers lost, which they did.

ADAM SCHIFF: (Singing) Meet the Mets. Meet the Mets.

INSKEEP: The congressman showed his enthusiasm on the floor of the House.

SCHIFF: (Singing) Time of your life.
