Wisconsin's governor soon will be enjoying a bushel of blue crabs (Old Bay and all) courtesy of Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.
Hogan said in a Facebook post Friday that he made a bet with Gov. Scott Walker on the Redskins-Packers playoff game. Hogan bet a bushel of Maryland blue crabs, Old Bay and a case of Flying Dog. If the Redskins had won, Hogan would have gotten Wisconsin cheese and sausage, Andes Candies and Leinenkugel beer. The Redskins lost 35-18 at FedEx Field in Landover on Sunday.
Hogan, who attended the playoff game, did catch some flak from Facebook readers who pointed out that the Washington Redskins are not a "Maryland team."
He would have been better off betting Walker on the Terps-Wisconsin basketball game. The Terps beat the Badgers 63-60 Saturday on a last second three-pointer from point guard Melo Trimble.
