    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Gov. Deval Patrick and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon announced a friendly wager ahead of Wednesday's World Series opener between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.

    Under the terms of the wager, if the Red Sox win, Gov. Nixon will donate a four-pack of Cardinal Cream Soda from Fitz's Bottling Company in Delmar; a box of chocolates from Bissinger's Chocolates; and an assortment of Italian baked goods from Missouri Baking Company on the Hill.
