California's U.S. senators have bet on the Golden State Warriors with a confidence that the bay Area team will defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the 2016 NBA Finals.
Earlier this week, Sen. Barbara Boxer and Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown set the terms of their bets. The loser will have to put on the victorious team's colors as well as deliver beer from their district to the victorious team's office.
Boxer and Brown had made a similar bet last year too, when Brown had to pay up after the Warriors defeated the Cavaliers in half a dozen games.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein has also made a bet with Sen. Rob Portman, staking a case of Chardonnay from a yet-to-be-determined Calif. winery against a case of Great Lakes beer from Cleveland's Great Lakes Brewing Co.
Boxer wagered beer from San Leandro-based 21st Amendment Brewery. If the Warriors scores victory, she would receive beer from Platform Beer Co. in Cleveland. Her staff members said it would be up to the loser to decide the quantity of beer needed to settle the bet.
