time-honored tradition between top city politicians is underway. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is placing a friendly wager with his counterpart, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

When the Braves lose (manifest!), Bottoms will don an Astros jersey, a city press release notes. She will also send Turner some award-winning peach cobbler from the historic Paschal's restaurant, a case of Mayor Bottoms' favorite Cherry Coke Zero, beer from Best End Brewing Company, and a hammer from Home Depot in honor of Atlanta's home run hero Hammering "Hank" Aaron.

Should the Astros lose, the City of Houston will send Mayor Bottoms Brisket Fried Rice and Pork Ribs from Blood Brother's BBQ (lucky), a case of "H-Town Pils" beer from St. Arnold's Brewery, and tamales and lemonade from Irma's Original.

Perish the thought, but Mayor Turner will also sport a Braves jersey.

The friendly wager was announced via Instagram Live on October 26, to learn more visit CultureMap.com

Drexler's big issue was trading Christian Wood, and how the team is void of veteran leadership. But Wood is the same guy that refused to go into a game, and doesn't seem to be exuding the type of leadership the Rockets want around Jalen Green.

ESPN Houston's Jake Asman, Cody Stoots, and Brad Kellner discuss Drexler's comments on The Wheelhouse.
