If LA wins, Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown gets Italian sausage, cupcakes and Long Island oysters. The prize for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo if the Rangers win? Rice cakes and a history book on California.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Remember to chew your popcorn quietly and find other cinematic recommendations from Kenneth Turan's book, "Not To Be Missed" at npr.org. Two governors are in a face-off over hockey's Stanley cup - New York's Andrew Cuomo for the Rangers and California's Jerry Brown for the LA Kings. The politicians made a wager that, frankly, doesn't seem fair. If LA wins, California's governor gets Italian sausage, red velvet cupcakes from Harlem and Long Island oysters. The prize for New York's governor if the Rangers win - rice cakes and a book called "California, A History." Maybe, what he really needs is a guide to negotiating. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
