OTTAWA — President Barack Obama followed through on his hockey bet with Canada, sending beer to the prime minister.
Stephen Harper received the delivery of Molson Canadian on Friday. Canada won the men's gold-medal game on Sidney Crosby's overtime goal.
Harper and Obama had each wagered a case of beer on the outcome.
Obama tossed in an extra case of Yuengling for Harper, the president's brew of choice had he won the friendly wager.
Ambassador David Jacobson, Obama's top representative in Canada, delivered the beer. He also congratulated "the Canadian people on the games."
"They were great, the athletes were great and the spirit and hospitality were great to my people and around the world," Jacobson said.
Harper responded in kind, lauding the American athletes and visitors. He also thanked Jacobson for making good on the wager.
"David, you guys always fulfill your promises to us, and we appreciate it," Harper said.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs wore Team Canada's colors during his daily briefing in Washington last week after losing a similar bet to Harper's spokesman Dimitri Soudas.
Soudas said the two cases of beer would be donated to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
