What do Barry Switzer and Captain Kirk have in common? A love for win.

William Shatner, the original leader of the starship USS Enterprise, and Switzer, the former Oklahoma football coach, appear set to work together on Shatner’s Hollywood Charity Horse Show. Switzer has agreed to provide the wine for the event from his Switzer Family Vineyard. Tulsa World pop culture writer Jimmie Tramel wrote about the wine pact and even took credit in bringing the two together.

“I asked Shatner on Twitter if he had gotten his shipment of wine from Switzer yet,” Tramel wrote, not only informing readers of the pact but that he also converses with Hollywood stars on Twitter. “That sparked a Twitter conversation between the actor and the coach.”
