FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11)—Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has made a friendly wager with his counterpart in Connecticut on the outcome of Monday night’s championship game.
If the Cats win, Beshear will get a basket full of Connecticut made beer, wine and chocolates to go along with the bragging rights of having three national titles brought back to the Commonwealth in as many years.
With a Huskies win, which will be their second title since 2011 season, beating UK in the national semi-finals en route to the title, the Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy will get basket full of some of Kentucky’s signature bourbons: Marker’s mark, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, Evan Williams and more.
However, the governors are not the only ones getting into the basketball spirit. The Attorneys General from both states have also made a friendly wager on the outcome of the game.
Kentucky’s Attorney General Jack Conway is betting a country ham from Union County, where his father was born and raised. Connecticut’s Attorney General George Jepsen is betting Connecticut wine, should the Huskies lose.
