In the first of what are sure to be many Super Bowl food wagers, Sens. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., are facing off. Clearly, a Steelers win would pay off better for Toomey -- he gets a whole tailgate. From Toomey's office:
In honor of the Feb. 6 Super Bowl featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Green Bay Packers, U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) have made a tasty wager on the winner of the big game.
Should the Steelers prevail, Sen. Johnson will provide Sen. Toomey with a savory assortment of Wisconsin cheese, bratwurst and beer. But should the Packers emerge victorious, Sen. Toomey will ship Sen. Johnson a delivery of Pittsburgh’s world-famous Primanti Bros. sandwiches, topped with signature French fries, cole slaw and tomatoes.
“I’m sure Sen. Johnson would enjoy some of Pittsburgh’s best sandwiches, which taste just as good as the upcoming Steelers’ victory,” Sen. Toomey said.
“Being frugal and a fiscal conservative, my first thought was to simply re-gift the Chicago Style Pizza and Illinois beer that the Packers helped us win from Senator Kirk. But that wouldn’t highlight the fine products made in Wisconsin. So I have decided to offer Senator Toomey’s office a generous basket of Wisconsin cheese, brats, and beer in the unlikely event that the Steelers prevail over America’s team, the Green Bay Packers,” Sen. Johnson said.
