Heat win ... and so do Sens. Rubio, Nelson

800px-chicago_style_pizza_with_rich_tomato_topping.jpgThe Miami Heat just beat the Chicago Bulls to advance to the NBA finals. Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson won, too, in a bet with their counterparts from Illinois.

Sens. Mark Kirk and Dick Durbin owe Chicago-style deep dish pizza. (If Miami lost, Rubio and Nelson would've had to serve up key lime pie and pastelitos.) The Heat will face the Dallas Mavericks, beginning Tuesday in Miami.

Also ... Florida Rep. Dennis Ross has bet Boston-area Rep. Stephen Lynch over Friday's game 7 of the Lightning-Bruins series. If Tampa wins, Ross gets a case of Sam Adams. If Boston wins, Lynch gets Florida orange juice and hand-rolled Tampa cigars.
