Gov. Jindal says he will bet Louisiana seafood that LSU Tigers beat Bama
Gov. Bobby Jindal jumped into the early trash-talking between University of Alabama and Louisiana State University football fans Monday, and said he will wager an unspecified amount of Louisiana seafood that the Tigers will take down the Crimson Tide when the No. 1- and No. 2-ranked teams meet in Tuscaloosa on Nov 5.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and LSU football coach Les Miles congratulate each other for major victories Saturday night -- Jindal's re-election and LSU's defeat of Auburn. Jindal also is offering a wager to the governor of Alabama on LSU's big game with the Crimson Tide on Nov. 5.
Jindal, fresh from a landslide re-election bid Saturday night, said in response to a question at a wide-ranging news conference that he expects Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley will ante up some goodies.
"He (Bentley) is a nice man and a good friend," Jindal said. "But we expect to beat them and treat them badly," Jindal said. "We will not be gracious guests."
Officials in Bentley's office did not immediately return a telephone call about the wager.
Jindal won a bet with Florida Gov. Rick Scott after the Tigers dominated the University of Florida Gators. Jindal said he received key lime pie for the Tigers' victory, and shared half of it with LSU Coach Les Miles.
"We sent them seafood anyhow" even for losing the bet, Jindal said.
Damn. I almost didn't recognize Miles in that picture.
