NC and WA governors make wager over championship

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper and Washington Governor Jay Inslee have made a friendly wager on the NCAA championship game.

As the University of North Carolina prepares to take on Gonzaga Monday night, the two governors wagered various delicacies native to their state.

Cooper offered to send barbecue pork from Sam Jones BBQ in Winterville, NC, Cheerwine, a soft drink from Salisbury, and North Carolina sweet potato products.

Inslee pledged Washington-roaster coffee, smoked salmon, a variety of Washington apples, and locally made chocolates in the event of a NC victory.

“The Gonzaga Bulldogs are ready to bring the championship trophy home to the Kennel in Spokane. Coach Few and this year’s team made history not just for Gonzaga, but the entire Evergreen State. Fear the beard, and Go Zags!” – Gov. Jay Inslee.

In the event of a Tar Heel victory, the winnings will be donated to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. If Gonzaga prevails, Inslee’s winnings will be donated to Olympia’s Thurston County Food Bank.
