N.Y., Pa. senators wager on World Series

Senators representing New York and Pennsylvania today went all-in on a culinary wager based on how their home states' teams fare in the World Series.

Should the New York Yankees  who clinched their berth last night, pull out a victory Sens. Charles Schumer (D-Pa.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) will receive a supply of Philly cheesesteaks.

But if the Philadelphia Phillies win, Sens. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) and Robert Casey (D-Pa.) will get a haul of New York cheesecake.

Specter, who hails from the Philadelphia area, started the trash talk today on Twitter:

I look forward to enjoying NY cheesecakes, although nothing will be as sweet as the Phillies' back-to-back titles. http://bit.ly/2TnQA2

The Series starts on Wednesday night. Who will win?
