Governors Make Wager Ahead of Saturday’s Playoff Game
BOSTON (AP) _ Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon are placing a friendly wager on the outcome of this weekend's playoff game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Massachusetts Republican has wagered Boston creme pie cupcakes from the Koffee Kup Bakery in Springfield, the state's official cupcake.
The Missouri Democrat has offered up ribs from Gates BBQ in Kansas City.
Baker said he's confident the Patriot's home field advantage will help carry the day, while Nixon is relying on his team's winning streak and what he called ``a swarming pass defense that will put more than enough pressure on Tom Brady.''
The two teams face off Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough,
The governors have agreed to donate the winnings to a local food pantry of their choice.
