DALLAS — Texas and Alberta, Canada have a friendly wager.

On Tuesday, Alberta Premier Danielle Smith challenged Gov. Greg Abbott to a bet.

"The Edmonton Oilers are facing off against the Dallas Stars soon," Smith wrote on X. "It seems only fitting that I challenge my counterpart Governor @GregAbbott_TX to a bet. When the Oilers beat the Stars, you must eat the world's best steak, an Alberta rib steak."

Abbott accepted the bet, responding via X, "You're on! I bet the world's best ribeye - which is only found in Texas - that the Stars beat the Oilers!"

The Stars take on the Edmonton Oilers in Game 1 Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
