U.S., Canadian spokesmen wager bet on hockey

It's a friendly wager that could leave White House press secretary Robert Gibbs wearing the colors of Canada.

Gibbs and his counterpart to the north, Dimitri Soudas, bet on the results of Thursday's gold medal women's hockey contest. Both teams were unbeaten in the Olympics, being played in Vancouver.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro says that if the United States wins, the prime minister's press secretary will don a Team USA jersey when he briefs reporters on March 3.

If Canada wins, Gibbs will wear a Team Canada jersey the next time he meets with reporters off-camera in his office.

Nice work, Gibbs. His record of backing losers is fully intact.
