Man buys Saints flag displayed by Indiana governor

5 years ago March 05, 2010 Mar 5, 2010 Friday, March 05 2010 Friday, March 05, 2010 8:58:36 AM EST in News

A New Orleans Saints flag that Indiana's governor displayed outside his office from losing a Super Bowl bet is heading to Louisiana after it sold in an online auction for $6,852.

The governor's office says Bryan Bossier, Sr. of Alexandria won the flag as bids in the final 30 seconds of the auction that ended Thursday jumped by more than $2,000.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will autograph the flag, which spent a week near his Statehouse door from the wager with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

The money is going to an inner city youth sports program run by Tabernacle Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis. 

Daniels set a condition that all youth football participants must learn to recover an onside kick, a mistake that hurt the Colts in the Super Bowl.
