On Thursday, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer sent to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa a wager on the NBA finals. Among other things, the Mayor's deal proposed that, with a Magic win, one year's supply of Staples products from the home of the Lakers, the Staples Center, could be put to good use by the City of Orlando.
After leaving narcissus staring into his own reflection – er – beating Lebron and some other guys – er – defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Orlando Magic have advanced to the NBA Finals. Speaking of the Biggest Losers, Shaquille O’Neal is in for an unfortunate result. Waiting for the Magic are Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer invites Central Florida residents to join him in cheering on our Eastern Conference Champions. At noon on Thursday, June 4, Mayor Dyer will host a pep rally at City Hall in Downtown Orlando.
The Orlando Magic have opened a one-stop shop for fans at the team’s Official Playoff Headquarters in the Altamonte Mall, the Magic announced Friday.
