The mayors of the two cities now battling in the NBA Finals are not the only pair placing a bet on the Heat-Thunder series.
The superintendents of the two areas have made a friendly wager too.
Miami-Dade Superintendent of Schools Alberto Carvalho and Oklahoma City Public Schools Superintendent Karl Springer made a wager Tuesday, according to John Schuster.
The two men agreed the superintendent from the losing team will teach a class on the history of the winning city’s team. The bet also says the lesson must be given while wearing the jersey of the winning team.
The lesson will be broadcast in the class of the winning team.
“I am looking forward to Superintendent Springer’s lesson on the rich history of Miami,” Carvalho said. “Miami is poised for another NBA championship, and I have full confidence in our Miami Heat team.”
Springer had the same message for his city, only with the victorious team switched.
“I am looking forward to seeing the pictures from Miami when Mr. Carvalho wears the OKC Thunder blue,” Springer said. “I have full confidence in our team and this is a great chance for Floridians to learn more about Oklahoma City and our state.”
