One benefit of KU’s loss to Kentucky: Brownback delivering burgers to Lawrence Community Shelter


The Lawrence Community Shelter will benefit from Kansas University’s men’s basketball team’s loss to the University of Kentucky in the NCAA championship game.

Because of a wager between Gov. Sam Brownback and Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear, Brownback will send 440 Kansas steak burgers to the Hope Shelter in Lexington, Ken.

In addition, Brownback Tuesday will deliver 120 steak burgers to the Lawrence Community Shelter.

“Like Gov. Brownback, we were cheering for a different result of the basketball game, but as a second outcome everyone at the Lawrence Community Shelter is grateful to the governor for this delicious and generous gift as a slam dunk of another sort,” LCS Executive Director Loring Henderson said.

Brownback said, “Gov. Beshear and I are very appreciative of the work done by organizations like the Hope Center and Lawrence Community Shelter.

“They provide the bridge that families and individuals need to get their lives back on track,” he said.

Brownback also thanked the Kansas City Steak Co. which helped provide the Kansas steak burgers and the Kansas Beef Council which helped arrange the donation.

Anyone else find it ironic that the murals in the Kansas Statehouse no longer reflect Kansas on any level. And Brownback removed funding for the Arts. John Steuart Curry must be spinning in his grave.

And I should disclose that I was an Art Major.

Wow, Brownback is actually helping people in need. . .

Brownback having to help the less fortunate?!!? Wow! I bet he's hating that! He usually prefers screwing over those in need of help. The Kentucky governor got him good! He should've also made a bet that he would have to support the arts.

That would've been torture for Brownback!

If Kansas had won, the KY Governor would have had to deliver bibles to local schools and prohibit the teaching of evolution for a year.

And the classy thing to do would have been to pay off (even though they were donated) the bet with UK, then double the amount and give it to the Lawrence shelter.

Or...Whale meat!

When republicans and democrats can no longer discus issues in a productive manner, you lose democracy. Get the cheap political comments off the site.

Only thing worse than the loss to the Cats are the posts of the Lib's, get a life.

Sounds like a great bet. Nice way to pay off on a bet.
