That friendly World Series wager between Governor Matt Blunt and Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm could be a double victory for Missouri if the Cardinals defeat the Detroit Tigers. A championship for the Cards would certainly thrill baseball fans throughout the state, and it would mean the Michigan Governor would publicy enjoy some of the good things produced by Missouri agriculture. Misti Preston with the State Agriculture Department points out a Redbirds’ victory would lead to Granholm eating Missouri Angus steak and drinking some award winning Missouri wine. In the event the Tigers win the Series, Governor Blunt would have to consume a Lil’ Caesars Pizza washed down by Vernor’s Ginger Ale. Preston says Michigan’s Governor will not be disappointed by her losing wager should the Redbirds win.
