Gregoire, Rendell make Super Bowl wager
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- The governors of Washington and Pennsylvania placed a friendly wager Tuesday on the outcome of the Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire said that in the "unlikely event" the Steelers win the Feb. 5 Detroit showdown, she'll send Gov. Ed Rendell a bushel of Washington apples and display a Steelers "terrible towel" in her office.
If the Seahawks prevail, Rendell promises to send Gregoire a big box of hotdogs and Heinz condiments to donate to a food bank. He also agrees to fly a "12th man flag" in Harrisburg, honoring the Seahawks fans who gained a reputation for being the noisiest in the NFL.
It's Seattle's first Super Bowl appearance. Gregoire and her husband, Mike, are longtime fans and cheered on the team Sunday when the Seahawks won the NFC championship. She won a bet with North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley: southern barbecue, slaw and hush puppies.
