VANCOUVER - White House press secretary Robert Gibbs will have to appear at his next media briefing in a Canadian ice hockey shirt after losing a bet.
Gibbs had a bet with his Canadian counterpart Dimitri Soudas that the US team would win the final of the women’s ice hockey tournament at the Winter Olympics against Canada.
However, the home side won the match 2-0 to repeat their 2002 and 2006 triumph, and Gibbs will now have to wear the Canadian shirt at his next briefing.
