The Mayors' bet

I always think the annual bet by the Mayors of the two cities appearing in the World Series is lame. This year, it's for sandwiches. Wooooo, risky! Here's my idea, which just came to me as I was reading Shysterball's entry about the bets:

The LOSER of the bet has to come to the city of the winning team --with his entire senior staff-- and help clean up AFTER THE TICKER TAPE PARADE. It combines real risk along with real shame in losing, plus it makes for a great photo op with a sitting mayor of a major city, broom in hand, cleaning the streets with his/her senior staff as the victors celebrate with the winning mayor at City Hall.

This must happen.
