Texas Archdiocese feeds Camillus after NBA Finals bet
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A friendly wager came to fruition Friday morning. The Archdiocese of Miami and Texas decided to feed those less fortunate, with a bet made during the NBA Finals.
If the Miami Heat lost in the Finals, stone crabs and cigars would be on its way to Texas. If the Spurs lost, which they did, regional food from San Antonio would be sent to Miami.
Mary Ross Agosta of the Archdiocese of Miami received the winnings at the Camillus House Friday afternoon. "What we have here today are 10 pounds of fajitas straight from San Antonio," Agosta said, "and 20 pounds of brisket, which is going to be fabulous barbecue."
Due to the close proximity of the Camillus House to the American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat, the Archdiocese of Miami chose for them to enjoy in the winnings.
Top executives from a San Antonio food chain did not get let off without having to do a little summer cleaning.
The executives are spending the weekend in Miami cleaning counters, serving customers and bussing table tops at a local Pollo Tropical.
"It's not so bad," said Mark Phillips of Fiesta Restaurant. "They were the champions right? We gave them a good run. Very proud of our Spurs, but glad to see a good team defeat us."
