Kansas Governor Pays Off Kentucky Wager With Load Of Meat

In most major sports championships, the governors or mayors from the areas their teams represent usually engage in a good-natured wager with one another. This year, the National Championship Game between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Kentucky Wildcats in the 2012 NCAA Tournament was no different. KU, of course, came up on the losing end of that wager and this week was time for Kansas governor Sam Brownback to pay up.

According to Tim Carpenter of the Capital-Journal, the two governors had wagers delicious meats against one another, Kansas beef vs. Kentucky ham. Brownback made even better on his end of the bargain, as he sent the meat to Kentucky residents in need.

Brownback, a graduate of KU's law school, delivered 120 steak burgers to Lawrence Community Shelter. Arrangements were made to take 400 burgers to Hope Shelter in Lexington, Ky.

Here's to Brownback, who was magnanimous in defeat and was able to help out citizens in another state at the same time.
