WASHINGTON (AP) — Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and New York Sen. Charles Schumer have a friendly bet riding on the Twins-Yankees playoff series.
If the Yankees win, Klobuchar will deliver 10 bags of fried cheese curds from Target Field to Schumer’s office — while wearing a Yankees cap.
Should Minnesota win, Schumer will wear a Twins cap while delivering 10 pizzas from Roma Pizza in Brooklyn to Klobuchar’s office.
Even though the Yankees are 9-2 against the Twins in the past decade in the first round of the AL playoffs, Klobuchar predicts this is the year Minnesota gets its revenge.
Schumer says the Yankees are on a mission to win one more World Series for former owner George Steinbrenner, who died in July.
The best-of-five series opens Wednesday night at Target Field.
