Last week, before the U.S. played Belgium in the World Cup, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. made a bet with his counterpart from Belgium.

Matthew Barzun offered to cook American pancakes for Guy Trouveroy if the U.S. lost its game. (If the U.S. won, Trouveroy was to make waffles.)

Team U.S.A. lost a heartbreaker of a game to the Belgian team, so Barzun headed over to the Belgian Embassy today to keep his end of the deal.
