Stephen Harper, the Canadian Prime Minister tweeted to U.S. President Barack Obama today, making a beer wager on the upcoming Olympic hockey game.
I'm betting @barackobama one case of Canadian beer per hockey game this week. #teamusa is good, but #WeAreWinter. #GoCanadaGo @WhiteHouse

This prompted the POTUS to respond
.@pmharper and I bet on the women's and men's US-Canada hockey games. Winner gets a case of beer for each game. #GoTeamUSA! -bo

UPDATE: President Obama placed a case of the rare White House home brew on the line. This afternoon, the United States Women’s hockey team fell to Canada, 3-2 in overtime.
Tomorrow (Friday) is the United States/Canada men’s game at 12 noon EST.
