Wagers on sporting events are standard fare among lawmakers.

California Sens. Barbara Boxer (D) and Dianne Feinstein (D) offered Dungeness crab, Napa Valley wine, sourdough bread and a selection of Northern California cheeses in their bet with Mikulski and Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.).

The Maryland Democrats had offered Faidley’s crab cakes, Berger cookies and Heavy Seas beer in exchange with Mikulski throwing in a can of one of Baltimore’s favorite hair sprays.

Details of Boxer and Feinstein's handover have yet to be announced. Senate Democrats will be on their annual retreat Tuesday and Wednesday and return to Washington on Thursday.
