Haute hoops

Gazette staff June 12th, 2012

Have you heard? The Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat are in the NBA Finals. No lie!

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.
