From Seattlest, posting on the various wagers between politicians over the Super Bowl:
Governor Christine Gregoire is putting up a bushel (which we think is two more than an acre) of apples vs. Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell’s box of hot dogs with Heinz condiments. Along with all of the food, a Hawk win would compel the Quaker Staters to fly the 12th man flag above their state capitol (sending a team of Texas A&M lawyers, ladders in hand, to Harrisburg).
In a related note, Dino Rossi made a similar wager with an imaginary Pennsylvania governor while in line at Blockbuster Video.
But the wagers don’t stop in the judicial branch. Senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell have also made a bet with Pennsylvania’s junior senator Rick Santorum. If the Steelers win, Santorum gets apples, salmon, and coffee. However, if the Seahawks win, his wife has to have an abortion.
