Washington, DC – Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee and Congressman Jimmy Gomez exchanged handshakes and traded some good natured barbs as the Congressman made good on his bet and delivered the spoils. The Democratic lawmaker from Los Angeles gave Congresswoman Jackson Lee and her staff a cart containing LA’s iconic Philippe’s French dipped sandwiches with all the fixings.

Had the Dodgers prevailed in the World Series, the California Congressman would have received genuine Texas barbecue, courtesy Congresswoman Jackson Lee. Ever gracious in defeat, Congressman Gomez donned a Houston Astros-themed tie and congratulated the Astros for their win against his beloved L.A. Dodgers. Congresswoman Jackson Lee expressed her gratitude for the delicious dish, and both lawmakers agreed that while routing against one another in baseball, they were glad to be playing for the same team in Congress.
