Obama's 48 Beer Gambling Debt Paid To Harper


As the Canadian men's and women's hockey teams blasted into the Olympic finals last week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and US President Barack Obama laid down a wager.


In both games, Canada skated away victorious and Harper got a bit cocky.


Obama's errand boy, John Kerry, US Secretary of State, was all class and didn't waste any time in settling the debt. But now, Canada has to figure out a way to share two cases of beer. At this time, party details are in short supply. Does the nation meet up at 24 Sussex? Is Herringbone playing? Will Liberal leader Justin Trudeau bring party favours? Details, please.
