U.S. Senator, Presidential Candidate, and lifetime Boston Red Sox fan Chris Dodd challenged New Mexico Governor and Yankees fan Bill Richardson to a friendly wager over this weekend's Red Sox-Yankees series. Dodd is wagering a gallon of authentic New England Clam Chowder that the Boston Red Sox will win the series against the New York Yankees.
"Nothing is more exciting than a Red Sox-Yankees series in September," said Dodd. "The Governor and I both dreamed about playing center field for our respective teams as children, and although that didn't happen, I know we will be both be watching this series closely, so why not have a little fun with it? I'm willing to wager some authentic New England Clam Chowder against an equitable wager from Governor Richardson, if he's confident enough in his team to accept my challenge."
