Florida oranges still bitter over the Rays loss

Mel Martinez and Bill Nelson have made good on their World Series bet to Penn senators Arlen Specter and Bob Casey -- with a delivery of Florida goods, but for the oranges which they jokingly said were "still a little bitter over the Rays' loss." Actually, Florida citrus will be at its peak ripeness in a few weeks and Martinez and Nelson will make the delivery after Thanksgiving.

They would have done the delivery in person, but an unnamed overnight delivery service failed to deliver the pastries from Opa Locka's own Latin Flavors on time.
