The governor of Kansas sent 440 steak burgers this morning

440 Kansas steak burgers were delivered to the new Jacobs Hope Cafeteria in Lexington this morning, courtesy of the great second-place state of Kansas. Governor Beshear is on hand to receive the burgers from Kansas governor Sam Brownback, after the two made a friendly wager on the NCAA title game. Had Kansas won, Beshear agreed to send Kentucky hams to a charity in Kansas.

“We would like to thank Kansas and Governor Brownback for their sportsmanship and this gracious donation,” Gov. Steve Beshear said. “Of course we also thank the UK team for thrilling us with their inspired play this season.”

Hope Center Executive Director, Cecil Dunn, says “It’s great to see a national event bring two cities together and help the homeless. We are very grateful to Governors Beshear and Brownback for their passion and generosity.  This beef will make an immediate impact on the homeless that we serve and is a very creative way to show our clients that our community cares.”

The donation will help feed over 400 homeless men and women at the Hope Center.

Go Cats.

    This is the type of gambling I approve of, people who need the help get it. I like #2’s idea also.

    How about we offer them, I don’t know, 400 jobs instead? Feeding them just makes them more reliant on handouts. Nice gesture, but I don’t see how this solves the larger issue of homelessness. Sounds to me like it just makes these politicians feel better about themselves.

    “The donation will help feed over 400 homeless men and women at the Hope Center.”

    I’m going to guess about 440…

    This is pretty cool for the governors to get together to do this. Now just wait for Emmert to try to vacate the championship game for the governors betting on it, as well as an article by Thamel making crazy claims about it.

    I am sure just a little over 400. Isn’t like the director, cook, janitor or someone didn’t get their Steakburgers. Steakburger is sounding pretty good right now.

    Would be nice if the governor would go ahead and send the hams to Kansas anyway as a good will gesture.

    Catmando is now hiring! Send everyone at the Hope Center over to his house because he has the hook up!
