SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Bob Riley won't be getting any
Oregon crab if his state's Auburn Tigers beat the Oregon Ducks in
the BCS Championship game.

Likewise, Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski won't be eating any southern barbecue if his team wins college football's biggest game on Monday.

Kulongoski said Friday there will be no friendly wager between
the chief executives.

Riley is a gambling opponent who has moved to shut down electronic bingo halls.

He got into some hot water a year ago when he made a bet with Florida's governor over the Southeastern Conference championship game - and he eventually told Florida's Charlie Crist not to send the oranges he owed.

    This is why we need an up or down vote on ALL gambling. So far the bills that have been voted on or put up for a vote recently would only have allowed a very few people to make big profits off gambling businesses. If we are going to have gambling it should be allowed for EVERYONE. Not just the casino owners and bookies. People who want to vote on gambling did so recently. We elected representatives who either will or wont bring up a bill for it. Also the laws currently on the books were voted on by us or our representatives. Of course if the gambling were legal then Gilley would never have been pushing to pass the sweet home alabama bill BEFORE he ever opened country crossing. If gambling were already legal? Why did he want to have it legalized again? hmmm????
