Gov. Jay Nixon Hopes 'A Different Chiefs Team Shows Up' Against Rams

So two teams in the same state play each other. You're the Governor. Pick one team, and half the state doesn't like your pick. Pick the other team and the other half of the state doesn't like your pick.

What do you do?

In Gov. Jay Nixon's case -- Kansas City Chiefs vs. St. Louis Rams -- don't pick at all.

"It's just so neat to have both teams from your state playing," Nixon said, "both of them leading their division, both of them having a game that really, really matters in December here, a game that has direct implications about whether these teams make it back to the playoffs this year. I'm just hoping for an exciting game and we're all hoping a different Chiefs team shows up than the one that showed up last week. Otherwise the Rams are going to roll."

Does anyone else get the feeling Gov. Nixon would like to pick the Rams? I sure do.

Chiefs. Rams. Governor's Cup. Noon.
