Look Ma! I’m an Ambassador!

So this is happening Saturday. I'll be on the sidelines, in the Press Box, in the locker rooms and goodness knows where else! My husband is an EWU grad and we're season ticket holders. This is a really big game and will be televised on ESPN! No way, was I going to turn this gig down.

I've never aspired to sports reporting, so help me out here.

 Any burning questions I should ask coaches or players? Pitfalls to avoid?

If Eags win, gov to eat lima beans

OLYMPIA — Flush from her winnings over the Holiday Bowl, Gov. Chris Gregoire has made another bet on a Washington football team, the Eastern Washington University Eagles.

Gregoire bet big on the U-Dub Huskies against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, salmon for Omaha steaks, and won the steaks from her Nebraska counterpart. So with the Eags playing the Delaware Blue Hens for the Division I championship, Gregoire made a bet Thursday with Delaware Gov. Jack Markel.

Blue Hens win, Gregoire will send some Walla Walla wine, steaks and Washington potatoes east to Delaware. Eags win, Markell will send some Dogfish Head Beach Beer (non alcoholic; it's a local root beer) Delaware chicken and lima beans west to Olympia.

Let see: Walla Walla wine vs, root beer. Steak vs. chicken. Potatoes vs. lima beans.

Seems pretty clear who's getting the better end of the betting line here.
