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.
