Illinois governor and Bears fan finally meets terms of championship game bet

The Packers and Bears rivarly is the longest in the NFL

I wrote a while back about how Pat Quinn, the governor of that state to the south … oh yeah, they call it Illinois … was making all Bears fans look bad because he was taking jaunts to places like Israel instead of fulfilling his promise to follow through on a bet he made with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on the outcome of the Bears vs. Packers championship game back in January.

Well, up until today, Quinn had hidden from the good people of Wisconsin and said he was too busy to follow through.

That came to an end when Quinn visited the Shalom Food Pantry in Kenosha to fulfill the terms of the bet – serving Wisconsin residents at the pantry.

In speaking for all Packers fans, Walker had this to say: “I would like to thank Gov. Quinn for coming to Kenosha this morning to serve at the Shalom Food Pantry. I look forward to having him back when the Green Bay Packers repeat as Super Bowl champions.”

Though I rarely agree with Gov. Walker on policy, I say “hear-hear” in seconding his comments to our Illinois neighbor.

And only reiterate … it’s about time …
