Members Of Congress: Don't Bet Against The Mets

Rep. Adam Schiff predicted the Dodgers would beat the Mets in the playoffs. He was wrong.

"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate Congressman Steve Israel and his beloved New York Mets," Rep. Adam Schiff said.

This is Adam Schiff. He's a Democratic representative from California, and a Dodgers fan.

And he just lost a bet to this guy, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY), a fan of the New York Mets.

The Mets beat the Dodgers 3-2 in their NCLS playoff series.

The Mets went on to sweep the Cubs and secure a spot in the World Series. The Dodgers can try again next year.

Yesterday, Schiff took part in the Benghazi Committee's 11-hour hearing of Hillary Clinton.

Today, he's singing the New York Mets' fight song.
