Blackhawks Wager

A Democratic congressman from Rhode Island and a Republican congressman from Illinois are betting lunch on the outcome of the Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks.
If the Blackhawks prevail, David Cicilline of Rhode Island agrees to serve Adam Kinzinger and his staff a pot luck of Rhode Island cuisine, including clam chowder.
If the Bruins win, Kinzinger will provide Chicago-style pizza and hotdogs and locally made popcorn.
Cicilline and Kinzinger were both first elected in 2010. They say the bet and the staff luncheon are intended to foster better relationships between Democrats and Republicans.
