With The Finals tied 2-2, Mayor-For-Now Dwaine Caraway finally made a sports bet with a Miami politician -- not Mayor Tomás Regalado, but Miami-Dade County Commissioner Chairman Joe A. Martinez, who extended the wager. The note came from City Hall late yesterday:
Caraway added a twist to the traditional bet: the losing team's representative must wear the winning team's jersey while performing a community service project.

"Gifts are great," Mayor Caraway said, "but helping people is what really matters, so I've challenged Chairman Martinez to up the ante by wearing a Mavericks jersey when he performs his community service project once his team loses to the Mavericks."

When the Mavericks win, Caraway will send Martinez a Mavs jersey to perform his community service project in, and Mayor Caraway will receive from Martinez stone crabs, Cuban pastries, and handmade cigars.

Similarly, should the Heat win, Martinez would send Caraway a Heat jersey to wear while performing community service. Martinez would receive from Caraway barbecue from Eddie Deen's, a Quatros Leche cake from La Duni, and a silver Dallas belt buckle. Caraway chose the belt buckle as a symbol of his "Pull 'Em Up Campaign."
Because Caraway is, after all, a trailblazer. And he likes to keep it comfy. Incidentally, Arthur had Mavs in six; Archie; Heat in seven.

Its kinda interesting the bet is not with the Miami mayor.  Was this a lack of mayorial respect (either way)?  Or did the county commissioner just beat the Miami mayor to the punch?  If so, next time JWP needs to get off his butt and beat the mayor to the punch.

Uniform violation!  Cowboys gear at Mavs game. No.

Tied 2-2? I thought we were up 3-2 with  the chance to end it all in game six?

Like I said the bet was made right before last night's game 5 ... meaning at the time of the wager, the series was tied 2-2.

Sorry, Robert. The workbot hovers through my cubicle every three minutes, so I don't always time to read thoroughly.

How will we be able to see D-wayne in a Heat jersey with his apron over it?
