Kaine Bets a Ham

Anita Kumar

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine and Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius have placed a friendly wager on the game between the University of Kansas and Virginia Tech in the 2008 Orange Bowl.

If Kansas loses to Virginia Tech, Sebelius will send Kaine a "delicious assortment of Kansas beef." If Virginia Tech loses to Kansas, Kaine will send Sebelius a Virginia ham.

Kaine grew up in Kansas but remains a Virginia Tech fan. "Tech is a great university with a great football team. I don't want to jinx them, but I think Tech's defense is going to handle KU pretty easily," Kaine said. "Tech's defense is more than KU has seen."

The Orange Bowl is Jan. 3 in Miami. Kaine will not be able to attend but Sebelius will be there.

"The Kansas Jayhawks have proven themselves to be outstanding students and incredible athletes,'' Sebelius said. "Pairing that depth of talent with their nationally acclaimed coach is a winning combination."

Okay, so which politician from Virginia will the Governor send? Heaven knows, he has a wide selection to choose from.

It shoulda been a bag of peanuts, or a carton of Philip Morris.
