Rick Perry owes Bobby Jindal 100 pounds of barbecued beef brisket

Food bank to benefit from governors' bet


  Texas Gov. Rick Perry may have owed Gov. Bobby Jindal his allegiance after Jindal came out early for him in the 2012 presidential election, but now Perry owes Jindal something else. After the LSU Tigers routed the Texas A&M Aggies Nov. 23, Perry owes Jindal 100 pounds of barbecued beef brisket. The governors had made a friendly bet on the game, with Jindal putting up 100 pounds of Louisiana seafood against Perry's Texas fare. Perry and Jindal had agreed to donate the proceeds of the bet to a food pantry in the winner's state. No word on which Louisiana food bank is now in possession of 100 pounds of brisket. — Alex Woodward
