Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement on a friendly wager with Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) on the outcome of the 2015 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers:
“As mayor of San Francisco, I wagered with my fellow mayors on the Super Bowl and my 49ers came out on top four times. As senator, I bet on the World Series with my colleagues, and my Giants have been victorious three times in the last five years. Now, I’m looking forward to yet another streak as the Golden State Warriors play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.
“I’m incredibly proud of what our Warriors have accomplished so far, and I’m equally confident that my bet with Senator Portman—fine California Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon against Ohio’s Great Lakes beers—is a solid bet. With Klay Thompson’s shooting and Andrew Bogut’s defense, not to mention Steph Curry’s MVP talent, this squad is set to bring another trophy to the Bay Area.”
