Looking for some ideas for sporting-team-related-bets - I'm a Red Sox fan, coworker is a Yankees fan, and we're looking for ideas for both bets (e.g., Which team wins more games) and payoffs (e.g., loser has to wear opposing team's jersey to work for a day)

We're looking to avoid monetary bets, and he's already taken tattoos off the table. Fun/slightly embarassing ideas are good, permanent/potentially job-losing ideas are probably over the line. For bets, so far we've discussed # of wins, playoff finish, team ERA, team batting average, and team OPS, but I'm sure the hive mind has far more ideas than we could come up with.
If it matters or helps, he's in NYC, I'm in Boston, and we both work in IT consulting. We'd like to get as many small bets as possible lined up by the end of spring training. Thanks!
