Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter is making good on his World Series bet with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Nutter joined Bloomberg Friday for some community service in the Bronx, but he had to wear a Yankees jersey while doing it.

Bloomberg and Nutter made a wager that said the loser had to come to the winner's city to do a community service project, while wearing the jersey of the winning team.

So they helped paint walls in a hallway at a junior high school in the Bronx. Nutter wore no. 55 - honoring World Series Most Valuable Player Hideki Matsui.

Bloomberg wore no. 27, which marks the Yankees' 27th World Series win.

Nutter said he will still help to paint a mural with the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.
