WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressmen David Schweikert (AZ-01) and Roger Williams (TX-25) announced they are placing a friendly wager on the outcome of the World Series between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers.
Congressman Schweikert offered street tacos as a concession if the Diamondbacks lose, while Congressman Williams wagered Texas barbecue if the Rangers are defeated. As a bonus, Congressman Schweikert also threw in Scorpion lollipops if the Diamondbacks somehow fail to clinch the World Series.
The Diamondbacks and the Rangers face off tonight in Game 1 of the World Series at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. The last time the Diamondbacks made the World Series was in 2001, when they won the best-of-seven playoff over the New York Yankees.
“With the D-backs on a roll, this friendly wager seemed like a no-brainer,” said Congressman Schweikert. “I feel confident I’ll be enjoying some delicious Texas barbecue after the Snakes come out on top when it’s all said and done. Embrace the Chaos!”
“With the Texas Rangers’ impressive pitching and hitting, I am all in for a friendly wager,” said Congressman Williams. “I’ll be ready to enjoy those street tacos from Congressman Schweikert when the Rangers take the series in six. It is time to Go and Take It!”
