Bad bet

I like gambling and betting and degenerate things of that nature, especially when it doesn't involve money.

I like reading about other people's betting, but this one disappointed me, because it's lame.

So, so lame.

The respective governors of New York and California, Andrew Cuomo and Jerry Brown, each ponied up some of their state's delicacies. 

Per WIVB in Albany:

If the Rangers win, Brown will send Cuomo the book ‘California: A History’ by Kevin Starr and Lundberg Organic Brown Rice Cakes.

If the Kings prevail, Cuomo will send Brown a ‘Taste of NY Gift Basket’ featuring products from local businesses across the state. Among the goodies inside are chicken wings from the Original Anchor Bar and 2011 Vidal Blanc Ice Wine from the Leonard Oakes Estate Winery in Orleans County.

Books? Rice cakes? And what the hell is ice wine? At least there are some chicken wings in there.

It's the two biggest and baddest cities in America, and that's the best you can come up with.

Booooooo. Do better.
