Wisconsin, Washington governors make bet on NFC title game

Saturday January 17th, 2015

Sports are always more interesting when you have something riding on the outcome, which is a lesson Wisconsin governor Scott Walker and his counterpart in Washington state Jay Inslee will learn first hand on Sunday when the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks meet in the NFC title game in Seattle.

The two governors have raised the stakes on the game, with Inslee offering up a case of Washington Beer, apples and oysters should the Packers win. Walker will provide Wisconsin cheese, sausage and beer should the Seahawks beat Green Bay.

With a wager this delicious on the line, Sunday's game – and the celebration afterwards – is sure to be one to remember.
