TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ New Florida Governor Charlie Crist
celebrated the Florida Gators 41-to-14 win over Ohio State by
calling Ohio Governor Ted Strickland to collect on a friendly
Crist is supposed to receive some of Cincinnati's famous Skyline
Chili, buckeye-shaped chocolates with a peanut butter center and
some Ohio wine. Strickland also has to fly the Florida flag over
the governor's mansion.
Crist said he couldn't get Strickland on the phone Tuesday and
joked that Strickland and his staff were ``hiding'' and
``depressed'' over the Buckeyes' loss. Crist says he's planning to
ship up a flag bearing the Gators' logo.
Crist also called Florida coach Urban Meyer and invited the team
to have lunch at the governor's mansion.
