Gov. Josh Shapiro has made his Super Bowl bets with Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly. One of the bets involves a Lower Bucks County bakery.
Shapiro, a Democrat, has bet Parson, a Republican, and Kelly, a Democrat, both who represent the Kansas City area. He announced the wagers on Thursday.
As part of the bet with Kelly, Shapiro has promised to send soft pretzels from Philly Style Hand Twisted Soft Pretzel Bakery in Middletown Township’s Levittown section, Cheesesteaks from Tony Luke’s in Philadelphia, and Eagles mini-doughnuts from Collegeville Italian Bakery in Montgomery County. In return, Kelly has wagered Creekstone Farms Black Angus Beef and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds. The governor of the losing team will have to send the winning governor the local foods.
Parson and Shapiro will exchange Eagles and Chiefs flags before the Super Bowl in Arizona on Sunday. The governor of the losing team will hang the flag of the winning team in their office next week.
Shapiro and First Lady Lori Shapiro, both Montgomery County residents, will attend Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona to cheer on the Eagles on Sunday, the governor’s office announced.
“Like millions of Pennsylvanians, Lori and I are excited to cheer on the Philadelphia Eagles and watch them bring the Lombardi Trophy back to the Commonwealth,” Shapiro said. “Pennsylvania is home to the greatest small businesses in the country – and while I love to share the best Pennsylvania has to offer with my friends in other states, the Eagles have been so good this season that I’m willing to double down on a win this week. Go Birds!”
“Governor Parson and Governor Kelly will also attend Super Bowl LVII, and Governor Shapiro plans to meet with them in Arizona ahead of the game to talk trash and ensure both governors are ready to fulfil their end of the bet,” the governor’s office said in a statement.
