I love Superbowl wagers between governors. They kind of remind me of strange minor league baseball deals.
Don’t get me wrong … whichever company’s product gets used in the wager is sure to get some recognition. And I think it’s great from a tourism and marketing standpoint as well. You see the list, you say, “Wonder what that tastes like…” or “Wonder where that’s at in the state…”?
I like the fact that there’s “gear” involved … but does that mean Cheeseheads and Beamheads?
Personally, I think it should get a little more … interesting. Say, if Pittsburgh wins, Wisconsin’s governor grows a Brett Keisel beard (I’m not familiar with this governor, he may be follically challenged like myself and unable to do a Polamalu, so the beard’s a fair trade-off). And if Green Bay were to win (Heaven forbid), Corbett should Lambeau Leap into the Dems during session for six months, with a Cheesehead on (being a Philly guy, I’m not sure if Rendell would’ve had the conviction to do this … but Corbett says he’s a Steelers guy).
So what do you think? What would you like to see the governors wager?
