MIAMI — The archbishops of Miami and San Antonio — US cities that are NBA championship rivals — have made their bets, and both are praying hard for a win.
Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski said Wednesday he had contacted his San Antonio counterpart Gustavo Garica-Sillerto to offer a “friendly wager” of key lime pie — a Florida specialty from Key West — and Cuban-style coffee.
Standing beside an oversized picture of Heat star LeBron James, Wenski said he was also including in his bet oranges, grapefruit and a donation to Catholic charities in Texas.
He said Garcia-Siller has offered a wager of his own, with some Texas delicacies.
“Go Heat!” Wenski said, before heading off to pray that the team — out for their fourth title and third in a row — get it done.
