Win or lose however, all three Governors will fulfill their end of the bet.
Baker has agreed to donate Boston cream cupcakes from the Koffee Kup Bakery in Springfield to Washington state. Hassan will donate New Hampshire bacon to a Washington state food pantry. Inslee will donate 1,000 cups of clam chowder to food pantries in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
“New England may have been hit by a historic blizzard this week, but nothing can ice our team who has another Super Bowl Championship to win this Sunday,” Baker said in a public statement.READ MORE: Man Allegedly Pulls Knife On Fellow Red Line Rider After Mocking COVID Mask
“Our lucky Boston cream pie cupcakes were a lucky wager against the Ravens and Colts, and I hope they will lead us to victory again on Sunday,” Baker said.
Lieutenant Governors Karyn Polito, of Massachusetts, and Brad Owen, of Washington also waged bets ahead of Super Bowl XLIX. If the Seahawks win, Polito will send a case from Wormtown Brewery and a box of cannoli from Wholly Cannoli, both products of Worcester, to Owen. If the Patriots win, Owen will send Polito a bottle of Quilceda Creek wine, an assorted package of smoked salmon, albacore tuna, herbal tea, a “Paddle to Quinault” plush throw and wooden decorative carvings and a small box of superior Washington apples.
“I’m excited to offer Lt. Gov. Owen some of Worcester’s finest goods, but I have a feeling he will not have the opportunity to enjoy them this year,” Polito said in a public statement.MORE NEWS: COVID Vaccine Passport Program Could Be Coming To Massachusetts Soon, Baker Says
