In any championship series, politicians decide to get some positive press by gambling with each other. The stakes usually include some local delicacies or unique products from the area.

If the Kings win, Cuomo will send local wines, produce, seafood, and more to Brown. If the Rangers win, Brown will send rice cakes and a book to Cuomo. 

Wait, what?
