Sweet victory for Bill Nelson



The Heat beat the Spurs, so Florida's senators won a bet with their Texas counterparts. On Thursday, Sen. Bill Nelson went to collect Blue Bell ice cream and Shiner beer from Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. Sen. Marco Rubio did not attend. Had the Spurs won, the Florida lawmakers would have provided stone crabs and Bacardi. Nelson had a single bite of ice cream and didn't touch the beer, which was all right with the senate staffers.
