COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The governors of South Carolina and
Florida are wagering a barbecue dinner against a key lime pie on
the outcome of the College World Series championship.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is putting the barbecue from
Hudson's Smokehouse in Lexington on the line for her state's
Gamecocks and their bid bring home a second consecutive
championship. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is putting up the pie from
Kermit's Key West Key Lime Shoppe.
Haley's office calls it a "friendly wager," but Haley
acknowledges she called up and "talked a little smack" to Scott.
The Gamecocks and Gators face off Monday night in the first
matchup of a best-of-three series in Omaha, Neb. South Carolina
captured the 2010 championship.
