John Kerry wins hockey bet, gets case of Molson

LONDON (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry now has a case of beer to quench his thirst as he continues a 10-day trip through the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird presented Kerry with a 24-pack of Molson Canadian lager on Thursday to make good on their bet over who would win the women's world hockey championship.

The U.S. beat Canada 3-2 in the gold medal game on Tuesday in Ottawa.

Kerry, a Massachusetts native, had wagered a case of Samuel Adams.

Kerry and Baird were in London for a meeting of the foreign ministers of the Group of Eight industrialized nations.
