The Governors’ Bet

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger made a friendly bet on Wednesday’s Rose Bowl game between Texas and USC.

If USC wins, Perry will send citrus, Blue Bell ice cream and barbecued beef brisket.

If the second-ranked Longhorns beat the top-ranked Trojans, Schwarzenegger will send Perry a basket of California foods like avocados, winter strawberries and salmon, along with a copy of his films Jingle All the Way, Collateral Damage, End of Days, Batman & Robin, and Junior.

Said Schwarzenegger–if for some reason our team loses, I have to hurt him just a little bit. And what better way then by making him watch me play Dr. Freeze in Batman & Robin?

(Please note–the part about Arnold sending his movies is a joke. He has promised to deliver them if USC loses–but he actually considers each one to be a good film.)

While we’re on the subject of Arnold–be sure to check out this great mashup/mp3 of some of our beloved Governor’s best movie lines and outtakes, set to techno music. It’s oddly intoxicating.
