Per sports tradition, Washington Governor Chris Gregoire has made a friendly wager with her counterpart from Georgia, Governor Sonny Perdue, on the outcome of the WNBA Finals matchup between the Storm and the Atlanta Dream. The stakes? Gov. Perdue has offered a box of Georgia peaches against a box of Washington apples from Gov. Gregoire.
“I’m convinced that Governor Perdue hasn’t seen the Seattle Storm in action – otherwise he wouldn’t jump at this bet,” Gov. Gregoire said in a press release. “The team has truly been an inspiration this season and I’m confident that their drive for success will bring home the WNBA championship. We all know Washington grows the best apples, but our peaches are also first rate. So if Governor Perdue has any ice cream in his freezer I recommend he sends that too, because I like my peach cobbler a la mode.”
Gov. Gregoire attended the Storm’s win over Tulsa earlier this season.
