Gov. Rick Scott pays up

Scott bought the pie two weeks ago at Kermit's in Key West and said he would send it to the Heat if they won. (Scott, who is more of a sports team owner than a sports fan, thought about letting Perry out of the bet for half a case of BBQ sauce after the Heat won the first game of the series.)
