San Francisco, Oakland mayors bet the farm on exhibition football game 

Ready for some football?

It seems Mayor Ed Lee and Oakland Mayor Jean Quan are. In anticipation of the NFL exhibition game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, the two city leaders have placed a friendly bet.

If the 49ers win, Lee will get some Oakland Vice Chocolates, Blue Bottle Coffee and Oakland-based wine. If the 49ers lose, Quan will receive some fresh San Francisco produce, a pound of Philz Coffee and crab from Fisherman’s Wharf.

Though the mayors won’t have to travel the lengths that Arlington, Texas, Mayor Robert Cluck did to deliver on his bet after losing the World Series, Lee was confident he’d be on the winning end.

The game, which will be held in Oakland, begins Saturday at 5 p.m.
