ST. LOUIS -- In a break from tradition, there will be no bet between the mayors of this year’s World Series cities.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay tweeted Monday night that there will be “no mayoral sports bet.” But the Democrat said he would welcome a visit to St. Louis from Boston’s longtime mayor, Thomas Menino.

Menino was trending Tuesday on Twitter, after telling reporters he hoped the Boston Red Sox would win the “World Series cup.”

Menino wasn’t impressed with what he called “fried raviolis” that Slay sent to him to settle a bet after the Cardinals lost the 2004 World Series to Boston. Toasted, not fried, ravioli is a St. Louis specialty.
