If Kentucky manages to beat Wisconsin in Saturday night’s Final Four game, U.S. Rep. Andy Barr will have some Badger State cheese to go with the bourbon he won off U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth last week.
Barr and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., have a placed a friendly wager on the Wildcats-Badgers game, and the stakes are cheesy.
If Wisconsin wins, Barr has to give Ryan some Kentucky beer cheese. If the Cats move on, Ryan, the 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee, owes Barr some Wisconsin Gouda.
"Between their unprecedented tournament play and the Julius-Randle-home-court advantage, I am confident that the Cats’ 16th Final Four appearance will be just the next step in their path to number nine," Barr said. "I am looking forward to adding some of Congressman Paul Ryan’s famed Wisconsin gouda cheese to my winnings after we beat his Badgers."
