San Antonio, Miami Archbishops make good-natured gamble on Spurs-Heat rematch
Archbishop Gustavo García‐Siller has accepted a friendly wager with Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami over the Spurs-Heat rematch for the 2014 NBA Finals.
According to Archdiocese Gustavo's communications office, he has wagered a donation to one of the Archbishop of Miami’s food banks while Archbishop Wenski is wagering key lime pie, oranges and grapefruits, a cafeteria coffee maker and Cuban coffee, and a donation to the Archdiocese of San Antonio’s Catholic Charities.
Last year, Archbishop Gustavo donated Texas barbecue and fajitas and said he is likely to donate the same "in the unlikely event the Spurs were to lose to the Heat."
“I’m confident that I will be enjoying the sweet taste of victory when the Spurs are crowned champions," Archbishop Gustavo said. "This will be a great rematch and I thank Archbishop Thomas Wenski in advance for his generosity and good taste. Go Spurs Go!”
