Dallas Mayor-‘til-Saturday Dwaine Caraway and Dade County Commission Chairman Joe Martinez got in on the betting action concerning the just completed NBA Finals — and, by the way, the Mavericks are basketball world champions because it can’t be said enough right now — a little late.
That might have been because Miami’s mayor, whomever she or he is, could be prescient and knew what was coming so a county commissioner had to step in by the time the series was tied at 2-2.
Anyway, time to settle up and rake in the spoils of victory, though those stone crabs Caraway won might be spoiled by the time they get here.
The hand-rolled cigars, though, should be fine.
Pizza Hut of Dallas and Burger King of Miami are working out the details that will have burger-meister Steve Wiborg temporarily employed as a pizza jockey, according to an item posted at the Dallas Business Journal’s website.
Better check his résumé.
Bruce Felps owns and operates East Dallas Times, an online community news outlet serving the White Rock Lake area. He wants one of those cigars, Dwaine.
