TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --
In a statement Friday, the Florida governor congratulated Gators coach Urban Meyer and his team for their victory against the Sooners in Thursday's BCS championship game.
Crist also took the opportunity to bring up his friendly bet with Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry: The chief executive from the losing state would be charged with sending to his counterpart a symbolic food item - Florida oranges or Oklahoma steaks.
Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn will also have to pay up. He agreed to sing Elton John's "Rocket Man" in front of Florida residents if he lost his wager with Florida Sen. Bill Nelson.
