Translantic bet

Did you know the US Ambassador to UK had a bet with his counterpart (Britain's ambassador to US) over the England vs. US world cup game?

The "losing" ambassador was to treat the "winning" ambassador at his choice of restaurant. I thought this was very interesting and kept keen eyes on the game to see who wins.

Interestingly the game ended in a draw. Now the ambassadors will still meet but they will split the bill!

That makes me feel better... I was afraid we would have to pay in full!

Nice one. This is something like 2 Governors betting which team will win the Superbowl. Make watching the game interesting.
