Illinois governor Pat Quinn is still waiting on the former governor of Pennsylvania, Ed Rendell, to fulfill a bet the two placed on the Stanley Cup finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers in 2010.
National Hockey League commissioner Gary Bettman is helping to mediate talks between the Pittsburgh Penguins and officials from the city, county and state about financing for a new hockey arena, Gov. Ed Rendell said.
The Pittsburgh Penguins couldn't strike a deal for a new arena during a late-night negotiating session Thursday with Gov. Ed Rendell and local leaders, but a gubernatorial aide said an agreement could be reached soon.
