Gov. Blagojevich accepts friendly wager with Washington State Gov. Christine Gregoire Winner depends on outcome of NFL Playoff Game


Springfield and DuQuoin treats part of wager


CHICAGO – Governor Rod R. Blagojevich today accepted a friendly bet with Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire, as the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks prepare to go head-to-head Sunday at Chicago’s Soldier Field in the National Football League (NFL) Divisional Playoffs.

If the 13-3 Chicago Bears prevail, Gov. Gregoire will provide apples and smoked salmon fresh from Washington.

If the 9-7 Seattle Seahawks win the game, Gov. Blagojevich will send to Olympia, Washington 17th Street BBQ, a DuQuoin State Fair favorite, and Cozy Dogs, an Illinois tradition from Route 66.

“The Bears have stepped up their game in every way this season. Bears fans have been with the team through some tough years, but this year we feel the team is ready to take their talent, hard-nosed game and determination all the way to the Super Bowl,
