Two shelters located about 600 miles apart will dish out hundreds of Kansas steak burgers to their clients as Gov. Sam Brownback pays off a friendly basketball wager with Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear.

Brownback had promised to send beef to the Bluegrass State if the Kansas Jayhawks lost the NCAA championship game to the Kentucky
Wildcats. Beshear had pledged Kentucky country ham to Kansas if the Jayhawks prevailed.

The Jayhawks lost the title game 67-59, and Brownback is making good with a shipment of 440 Kansas steak burgers. Beshear is to accept the donation Tuesday at Hope House, a Lexington shelter serving the homeless and people with addiction and mental health
issues.

In Kansas, Brownback will hand-deliver 120 of the burgers Tuesday morning to Lawrence Community Shelter.
