Gay publishers ante up for World Series

Is it just us or does Giants closer Brian Wilson look like someone you’d run into at the Dallas Eagle?

Dallas Voice Publisher Robert Moore felt left out last week, after the publisher of New York City’s Gay City News refused to make a friendly, legal wager on the Rangers-Yankees series. I won’t repeat Robert’s exact comments here, but basically, the publishers of San Francisco’s Bay Area Reporter and The Philadelphia Gay News had bet on the National League Championship Series, and Robert badly wanted a piece of the action.

Well, good things come to those who wait, and thanks to the Rangers first-ever World Series berth, Moore is finally getting in. Moore and Bay Area Reporter Publisher Thomas E. Horn have agreed that the loser will contribute $1,000 to a charity in the winner’s city and appear in the opposing team’s gear in a photograph to be published in the winner’s newspaper.

And while these are some pretty high stakes already, we’d also like to see Moore don a leather-daddy beard a la Giants closer Brian Wilson should the Rangers lose.
