Wyoming, New Mexico Attorney Generals Make A Bet
Chocolate and chili are on the line
A fun bet for a few lawmakers on the opener
New Mexico State is treating this home opener as a huge deal. ESPN is in town for the first time in nearly a decade and the team is also going to celebrate the first bowl win in 57 years.
Now there is a layer to this game which usually is reserved for the mayors of Super Bowl cities. Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael has been challenged by New Mexico attorney general Hector Balderas.
The wager on the line is green chile and pistachios for the New Mexico side and hand-crafted chocolates and some Chugwater Chili from the Wyoming side.
Balderas created an official document and said, “If by some miracle, Coach (Craig) Bohl and your Cowboys prevail, I will send you some of New Mexico’s finest green chile and pistachios.
On the other hand, when Coach (Doug) Martin and our Aggies send your Cowboys packing, loss in hand, I will take whatever item of Wyoming pride you deem fit.”
Michael responded with his own by saying, “… if by some miracle the Aggies prevail, you will be pleased, and I think delighted, to enjoy some of Wyoming’s finest hand-crafted chocolates and Chugwater Chili. Yes, there is a town in Wyoming called Chugwater.”
