To capitalize on the hoops mania, the teams’ respective civic leaders
have placed friendly bets on the contest: The victorious will dine on
the loser’s culinary specialties.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez will send Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett stone crabs when the OKC Thunder win the Finals. That’s right: If you want crabs, go to Miami.
In the exceedingly unlikely event the Heat win, Cornett would send Gimenez steak.
Not to be outdone, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has pledged a Made in Oklahoma gift basket for Florida Gov. Rick Scott. The more likely scenario, of course, is that Scott would be sending the first family a Key lime pie he has pledged.
