Michigan Governor Breaks Out The Carolina Blue

Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm has paid off her NCAA basketball tournament debt.

Granholm was photographed in a Tar Heel jersey and hat to settle her wager with North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue on the tournament's championship game. North Carolina toppled Michigan State 89-72 on Monday.

A photo released Friday by Granholm's office shows the governor wearing the jersey and ready to bite into a Krispy Kreme doughnut with Carolina blue icing.

A basketball with a Michigan State logo is strategically positioned in the background.

Granholm also made a $100 personal donation to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to settle the bet.

    Who cares. The debt should be paid by feeding the nations starving not thyself. I hope this is going to get better and for people to stop showing off.
