The University of South Carolina Gamecocks come back to Columbia with a second straight national title. That means a win for Governor Nikki Haley as well. South Carolina defeated SEC East rival Florida in Omaha, meaning the Governor wins her friendly wager with Florida’s Governor Rick Scott.
While Haley bet him a barbecue dinner from Hudson’s Smokehouse in Lexington. Governor Scott bet a key lime pie that the Gators would win.
Kermit Carpenter, Director of Kermit’s Key West Key Lime Shoppe, says he’ll be sending the governor one of his famous key lime pies, and chuckles when he says this has happened to the Florida governor before.
This is his second loss now because he had a bet with the Texas Governor also, on the NBA playoffs. So, we’re not doing too good right here now in Florida! But it’s good for me.
We looked up Kermit’s website and found that by the time the pie is purchased, packaged and shipped, it’s just under $74. Not too shabby, but it’s not a barbecue dinner from Hudson’s Smokehouse.
As of Wednesday morning, Kermit was waiting to hear from Scott so he could get the shipping address for Haley.
We would suggest: ” The Governor’s Mansion, Columbia, South Carolina, Home of the Gamecocks, College World Series Champions!”
