Obama makes good on sudsy bet

Harper collects two cases of beer for Olympic hockey win


There’s nothing like a cool, refreshing beer to toast a victory—especially when it’s delivered on behalf of U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama made good on his Olympic hockey bet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper Friday, with U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson hand-delivering two cases of beer to 24 Sussex Drive. Jacobson, who told Harper there were “no hard feelings” over Canada’s 3-2 victory over the U.S., brought over 24 bottles of Molson Canadian and a case from the Pennsylvania-based Yuengling brewery. Harper, however, won’t be sampling his spoils: according to a spokesman, the beer is being donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame.

  1. Huzzah!

  2. He's probably just relieved that we didn't burn down the White House (again).

  3. You gave both cases of beer away?! You know how I feel about giving!

  4. it's unCanadian to waste beer, they should drink it and give the empty bottles to the museum ..by the way, Molson isn't a Canadian company… for Canadian beer he would have had to bet using a microbrewery
