ECHL Stockton and Bakersfield are facing each other in the second round of playoffs.
From press release:
On the eve of the best-of-seven series, Stockton mayor Ann Johnston and Bakersfield Mayor Harvey Hall have announced a friendly wager: a case of asparagus from Stockton versus a case of Dewar's candies from Bakersfield. The winner not only will see their city's team advance to the Conference Finals for the first time in their club's history, but also enjoying a taste of the local food delicacy from the losing club.
(For those not in California, asparagus is a delicious vegetable, as are artichokes.)
