Governor Perry Loses Wager on the Western All-Stars Little League Team

Texas Governor Rick Perry was rooting for the Western Little League All-Stars.

According to the Atlanta Constitutional Journal, he even made a friendly wager with the governor of Georgia. Perry, of course, believed the boys from Lubbock would win the US final. But the Little Leaguers from Georgia beat Lubbock in the final and went on to win the Little League World Series.

Still, the Western All-Stars returned to the Hub City as champions, with the 3rd place Little League World Series title.

Since Texas lost that US final, Perry made good on his wager Thursday. The Atlanta Constitutional Journal posted a picture online, showing the Georgia Flag flying at the Texas capital in Austin.
