The jersey is in the mail

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs will make good on his end of a bet on gold medal Olympic hockey and feverish, hockey-crazed Canadians will have the pleasure of seeing him resplendent in a Team Canada jersey at a White House press conference sometime in the near future… but not just yet:

No hockey wear today for White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.

Not yet.

The Canadians who won their Olympic bet — their team beat the United States yesterday for the men’s hockey gold medal –– are shipping Gibbs a Team Canada jersey to wear at a future briefing, probably this week.

“Trust me,” Gibbs said, “the Canadians have kept in very close contact for this.”

And which one will it be?  The red or the white?  I’ll be watching this important developing story.

UPDATE (Tuesday):  Gibbs apparently has 2 weeks to make good:

Gibbs had better hurry: he has two weeks to wear the jersey, which he has to keep on for at least the first 15 minutes of a daily briefing in front of the cameras.

and yes, we are watching.

Apparently our neighbors to the North are watching closely.

You betcha.  (Now where’s that two-four of Molson’s Obama owes Harpie?)

    There was a case of beer in the balance.

    Obama is buying Harper a 24 of Molson’s.

    I think the red jersey will look better with his complexion than the white one.

    JAB – Yes, tell your pres. to get that two-four on the dogsled and point the lead dog north! MUSH!

    😆 😆 😆 😆

    JJ, if I had that much clout with Obama, we’d have universal health care, gay marriage, and Bush, Cheney and their enablers would be in The Hague facing war crimes charges.

    So, if you had that much clout… you’d be CANADA 😯 😉

    So? It’s been 5 days and I haven’t seen Gibbs in a Team Canada jersey yet. I hope he’s not trying to get out of doing it 😯 😉


Wait. What?
