ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — The governors of Illinois and Indiana admit they don't have much in common, including when it comes to sports.

But Illinois Democrat Pat Quinn and Indiana Republican Mike Pence say they're both rooting for the Blackhawks when they take the ice Monday in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final with a chance to win their second championship in four seasons.

The governors spoke Monday to promote a proposed interstate highway.

Quinn says Illinois and Indiana don't agree on basketball, but the states are united on the Illiana Expressway and the Blackhawks.

Pence says the states love to compete in basketball, football and jobs, but he's for the Hawks too.

Quinn has a bet with Massachusetts' governor. The losing team's governor has to volunteer in the winner's state.
