Sen. Cruz, Jimmy Kimmel to face off in Houston basketball match-up

Posted June 19, 2018

Senator Ted Cruz, 47, and Jimmy Kimmel, 50, gave it their all in a charity basketball game against each other in Houston, TX on June 16 and it was every bit as entertaining as we could imagine. The game, which was played one-on-one, was filmed for a special segment on Jimmy's late night show which will air on June 18 but the results are already making headlines: Ted won, 11-9, according to ABC News.

After comparing Cruz's appearance to that of a blobfish after Game 7 of the Western Conference finals between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, Kimmel was challenged by the senator to a game of hoops, according to ABC13. Kimmel said Cruz looked like a blobfish and a Munster from the eponymous 1960s television show The Munsters. Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is poking fun at his opponent Senator Ted Cruz ahead of Saturday's basketball match-up. On the video, he thanked Allen for agreeing to stand in for him against Kimmel.

Cruz, who was on his high school's varsity basketball team, is the bookies' favorite to win.

"You're a good sport, Kimmel told Cruz during the post-game ceremony".

Gov Jeff Colyer was briefed on the incident as he arrived to a congressional forum hosted by the Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. Looking out a window, he saw three people on the ground in a parking lot behind the building, Garcia told the Kansas City Star .

'If I lose I'm not going home. You besmirched my support for the @HoustonRockets.

Texas Children's Hospital, located in Houston, Texas, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to create a healthier future for children and women throughout our global community by leading in patient care, education and research. Both men were playing for a charity, with the loser ponying up $5,000 to the charity of the winner's choice.

Kimmel threw out "crop tops" and again Cruz deflected. If he goes up to dunk, I'll pull his shorts to the ground rather than let him get to the rim.

That idea didn't fly for Cruz, with him tweeting in response: "NOBODY wants to see that". "I still think you're a bad senator".
