Obama Bets Beer in US vs. Canada Hockey Showdown

President Obama is putting a few brewskis on the line in a wager with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper as the men’s and women’s hockey teams from the U.S. and Canada are set to face off in the Olympics.

Obama and Harper spent the day together in Toluca, Mexico, for the North American Leaders Summit Wednesday, where they “agreed to disagree on who to root for” in the upcoming hockey match-ups between the U.S. and Canada.

“For a very brief period of time, I might not feel as warm towards Canadians as I normally do — at least until those matches are over,” Obama said.

Team USA’s women hockey players are going for the gold against Canada on Thursday while the men’s teams play Friday.
