Texas Governor Rick Perry is proving he isn't too "sour" about losing a football bet with Governor Jack Dalrymple, But his gift is a little.

Jack Dalrymple – Governor, North Dakota: "He was confident he'd never be paying this off."

Late this afternoon, Governor Dalrymple got a box of Texas "Rio Star" grapefruit; payment from a bet made on the NDSU-Sam Houston State football game.

Governor Dalrymple says there was a note from Governor Perry, saying "I'm covering my bet"....

Governor Jack Dalrymple: "I think the sweetest thing of all, is the Bison going down to Texas, where the game was held, and right there in Texas football country, proving to them that we are the best in the country, that had to be the sweetest moment of all, for sure."

Dalrymple says he's actually more of an orange man, but his wife Betsy really loves grapefruit. He also says he's now 3-0 on sports bets made with other state governors.
