Turner then joined the broadcast, and the two mayors got down to business.
If the Astros win, Bottoms promised to send Turner peach cobbler from the historic Paschal’s restaurant, a case of the mayor’s favorite Cherry Coke Zero, beer from Best End Brewing Company located in the West End — and a hammer from Home Depot in honor of Atlanta’s home run hero “Hammering” Hank Aaron.
Turner will also get a Braves jersey, and will be expected to wear it all day if the Braves are victorious.
“Go ahead on and send that peach cobbler to me right now, so I can go ahead and start eating,” Turner said to Bottoms.
If the Braves win, Turner said he will pay up with Brisket Fried Rice and Pork Ribs from Blood Brother’s BBQ, a case of “H-Town Pils” beer from St. Arnold’s Brewery, and good ole fashioned Tamales and lemonade from Irma’s Original.
“I love Houston,” Bottoms said. “I love Mayor Turner. But I’m not rooting for Houston this time.”
