Legislators join football betting craze

OLYMPIA -- Washington legislators, in a rare bit of bipartisanship, have banned together to make a bet with their Colorado counterparts on the Seahawks-Broncos game.

Among the booty at stake if the Broncos win: Cougar Gold Cheese (courtesy of Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville), Arbor Crest wine, (Sen. Mike Padden, Spokane Valley), Smoed Salmon, Almond Roca, Aplets and Cotlets, Bainbridge Island gin, Tulip Bulbs, a Costco gift card.

Coming west if the Seahawks win: Microbrewery stout and ale, a John Denver's Greatest Hits CD, lift tickets to a Vail Ski Resort, Rocky Mountain Chocolates, Celestial Seasonings tea, Stranahan's whiskey and La Casita Tamales.
