Mel Martinez pays off bet...



Melberries ...To NJ Sen. Robert Mendendez over the USF Bulls' October 20-27 football loss to the Rutgers Scarlett Knights. Here are Ryan Dufffy, Brad Rawls and Jessica Garcia delivering the goods. Sure beats the saltwater taffy and cranberries Menendez would have had to hand over.

"“As promised, these strawberries are intended to help remind Senator Menendez that Florida is the sweetest place to live, visit, and play sports,” Martinez said. “Picked yesterday in Plant City, Florida, this is one of this season’s first batches of strawberries and I hope my good friend enjoys what Florida has to offer.”
