Barack Obama, Canada Prime Minister Wager Beer On Olympic Hockey Games


February 20, 2014

National pride will be on the line when the hockey teams of the United States and Canada square off twice this week at the 2014 Winter Olympics. And some beer, too.

President Barack Obama and Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper have placed a friendly wager on the women’s gold medal game and the men’s Olympic semifinal, both of which feature the North American rivals.

A win by the U.S. will send a case of Canadian beer to Washington, D.C., while a Canadian victory will send a case of the White House’s own Honey Porter brew north of the border. They also took some playful jabs at each other on Wednesday.
