Governors Of Kentucky, Kansas Make Literal Wagers Of Beef And Ham

Nothing like a good friendly bet with meat involved between friends. With tonight's national championship game for the 2012 NCAA Tournament between Kentucky and Kansas, it appears that bragging rights are not the only thing at stake. In fact, the respective Governors of both states have decided to bet each other a piece of meat -- either Kansas beef or a Kentucky ham. Quite inspiring.

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback said, This is the way it's supposed to be - the two winningest programs and the two most passionate fan bases competing for the title. We sent Kentucky Adolph Rupp, but we're bringing home the title. Rock Chalk Jayhawks!"

Steve Beshear, the Governor of Kentucky, said, "The Wildcats are talented, unselfish and focused - they've been a thrill to watch all season. It will be a real treat to see these fantastic coaches, John Calipari and Bill Self, go head to head, but Kentucky clearly has the edge over the Jayhawks. We can't wait for the Wildcats to bring home the school's eighth national championship. Go Cats!""This is the way it's supposed to be - the two winningest programs and the two most passionate fan bases competing for the title. We sent Kentucky Adolph Rupp, but we're bringing home the title. Rock Chalk Jayhawks!"
