And now, for some actual links for this daily link dump:
The former governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell, totally flaked on his Stanley Cup bet with Illinois governor, Pat Quinn, when the Blackhawks beat the Flyers in 2010. The two agreed that the loser would have to travel to the other’s state, wear a jersey of the winning team and work at a local food bank. Rendell, as the loser, has not lived up to his part of the bet. Rendell swears that it’s Quinn’s fault:
“There were two dates set and Governor Quinn canceled both of them for business reasons,” Rendell responded Wednesday afternoon. “However, if the governor is obsessed with me coming in, I will do so even though I am no longer governor and we are no longer Stanley Cup rivals.”
I can’t wait to see what happens with this one. Wait, yes, I can.
