DENVER ” It’s beef vs. seafood in the traditional World Series bets between governors and senators from Colorado and Massachusetts.

The mayors of Denver and Boston also threw in a smorgasbord of treats made in their respective states.

The Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox open the Series Wednesday at Fenway Park.

Sens. Wayne Allard and Ken Salazar of Colorado are wagering Colorado-raised beef; Massachusetts Sens. Edward Kennedy and John Kerry are countering with New England clam chowder and lobster rolls.

The senators who lose the bet will donate the grub to a charity chosen by the senators who win.

Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter is wagering a box of beef and buffalo steaks. Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick’s wager hadn’t been announced.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper wagered sub sandwiches, herbal tea, tortilla chips, salsa and ice cream against Boston Mayor Thomas Menino’s clam chowder, coffee, doughnuts and ice cream sandwiches. The winning mayor will serve the treats at a charity of his choice.
