Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York says he'd wear a Kansas City Royals jersey if he loses. Missouri's Jay Nixon would wear a Mets jersey. That's nothing compared to what Rep. Adam Schiff of California did.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The governors of New York and Missouri are betting on their teams in the World Series. Andrew Cuomo says he'd wear a Kansas City Royals jersey if his team loses. Missouri's Jay Nixon would wear a Mets jersey. Impressive, but nothing like Congressman Adam Schiff, who, earlier in the playoffs, promised to sing a Mets song if his Dodgers lost, which they did.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "MEET THE METS")

ADAM SCHIFF: (Singing) Meet the Mets. Meet the Mets.

INSKEEP: The congressman showed his enthusiasm on the floor of the House.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "MEET THE METS")

SCHIFF: (Singing) Time of your life.

INSKEEP: It's MORNING EDITION.
