Sure, it’s a battle for the Governor’s Cup, but the mayors of Lexington and Louisville have gotten in on the game as well.
Lexington Mayor Jim Gray announced a friendly wager on Saturday’s game with his Louisville counterpart Greg Fischer.
If Kentucky wins, Fischer has agreed to send a personalized Louisville Slugger bat and if the Cardinals win, Gray will send Fischer a bottle of Town Branch Bourbon. The Town Branch Distillery became the first distillery built in Lexington in more than 100 years.
“There’s a lot of excitement about Coach Stoops and his team,” Gray said in a release from his office. “The Big Blue Nation is looking forward to taking back the Governor’s Cup!”
