Stanley Cup Wager

27 05 2008

I love it when dignitaries make wagers like this.  It’s pretty much commonplace among Mayors….but who would want to wager with Kwame Kilpatrick….and usually the winner gets food from loser.

LANSING – Governor Jennifer M. Granholm today placed a friendly wager with Pennsylvania’s Governor Edward G. Rendell on the 2008 Stanley Cup finals between the Detroit Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins. 

Adding a note of friendly competition to the Red Wings and Penguins Stanley Cup final series, Granholm and Rendell have agreed that the governor of the losing team must be photographed enjoying a meal from the winning state while wearing the winning team’s jersey.  A photo of the occasion must be publicly released.

The selected meal from Michigan that Governor Rendell would enjoy includes, Faygo Rock and Rye pop and Kowalski Kowality sausage, both companies are headquartered in Detroit. For a sweet treat, Michigan-grown cherries would also be provided to Rendell.  Hot dogs from The Original Hot Dog Shop, a Primanti Brothers sandwich, and Smiley Face cookies from Eat ‘n Park restaurant, all Pittsburgh establishments, have been selected for Governor Granholm.   

The Detroit Red Wings have won 10 Stanley Cup championships throughout history, more than any other franchise based in the United States.  Game one of the finals is scheduled for Saturday, May 24, at 8 p.m. 

To make things even more interesting, Governor Rendell should get his Faygo sprayed on him by The Insane Clown Posse…..looks like it could happen by this weekend too…
