NY, Pa. senators wager cheesesteaks, cheesecakes

BY foxsports • October 27, 2009

Will it be cheesesteaks or cheesecakes? The U.S. senators representing Pennsylvania and New York are betting local delicacies in a friendly wager over the World Series. If the Yankees win, Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand will get a supply of Philadelphia cheesesteaks. If the Philadelphia Phillies win, Sens. Arlen Specter and Robert Casey will get some cheesecakes from Junior's. There are higher stakes to another food bet. If the Yankees lose, New York City's Hunts Point Terminal Market will donate a truckload of local produce to a Philadelphia food bank. If the Phillies lose, the Philadelphia Regional Produce Market will send food to a New York City food bank. The first game of the World Series is set for Wednesday night in New York.
