South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin are so confident that their respective team will win, they’ve made a wager on the series: shrimp and grits and award-winning She-Crab Soup from Tristan Restaurant vs. Alaskan King Salmon. The winner will not only get the Kelly Cup title, but also the opportunity to taste the local cuisine from the losing team. For more on the wager and upcoming game, click here.
