Governor Mike Easley has Mountaineer fever- and he’s willing
to bet on his team, literally.
Easley and Delaware Governor Ruth Ann Minner
agreed to a “friendly” wager yesterday on the outcome of Friday night’s NCAA
Division I Football Championship between the Appalachian State University
Mountaineers and the University of Delaware Blue Hens.
Should ASU lose, Easley has to deliver a pound of
eastern North Carolina barbeque from Goldsboro, a pound of western barbeque
from Lexington, fixings, and a case of Cheerwine. Should the Mountaineers prove
victorious, however, Minner will have to deliver some Delaware favorites:
Grotto’s pizza, Nic-o-Boli’s and Dogfish Head root beer. In a statement to the
Associated Press, Easley said he’s looking forward to the pizza- but not as
much as he will “savor watching Appalachian State’s football team take their
unprecedented third consecutive national title.”
