Another Utah Jazz playoff series brings another round of friendly wagers.
This time, the president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, Stan Parrish, will present the president and CEO of the Chicago Chamber, Jerry Roper, with a "party in a basket" - a gift basket full of goodies from Salt Lake City and Utah - if the Chicago Bulls defeat the Utah Jazz.If the Jazz win the NBA title, the scenario will be reversed.
Rep. Merrill Cook, R-Utah, has a friendly wager going with Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., D-Ill., on the outcome of the NBA Finals.
The losing team's congressman must wear the full uniform of the winning team to a Capitol Hill press conference hosted by the winning team's congressman. He must also wear the uniform during the remainder of the business day, except floor votes.
Cook also has a bet with Rep. Danny Davis, D-Ill. The losing team's congressman must praise the winning team in a speech on the House floor.
