Mayor Fischer wagers bourbon on outcome of NCAA championship

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is offering bourbon and some other trinkets to back up his wager that the University of Louisville men's and women's basketball teams will advance to the NCAA championship games.

Fischer's office said he made the bets by phone Thursday with Wichita, Kan., Mayor Carl Brewer and Berkeley, Calif., Mayor Tom Bates. Louisville's men's team plays Wichita State in a semifinal game Saturday night, and Louisville meets California in women's semifinal action Sunday night.

Fischer is offering a trunk containing several brands of bourbon as well as T-shirts, hats, candles and glasses.

Brewer has wagered steaks and beef from Cargill Meats in Wichita on the men, and Bates will send a dozen bottles of local California red wines if the Cardinals win the women's game.
