Florida Likely to Gain Two Congressional Seats: Sorry Chris Bosh, Hello Reps. James & Wade

The sunshine state is set to gain two spots in Congress, according to a study of new census data released this weekend. While undoubtedly good news for Florida, Riptide is left to wonder: Who will fill the pair of seats?

Our vote goes to the two men most responsible for Florida's surging voter rolls: LeBron James and Dwayne Wade.

Can the representatives from Miami please take a break from dunking in Shaq's face to vote on the amendment?

Sorry Chris Bosh. How about mayor?
