BOSTON — Ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams, today Governor Charlie Baker of Massachusetts and Governor Gavin Newsom of California announced a friendly wager on the game’s outcome.
Governor Baker wagered volunteer hours by himself and the Governor’s Office staff at a local charity should the Rams pull off an upset.
“Contrary to popular belief, the New England Patriots are still here and heading to their third straight Super Bowl to give the Rams everything they’ve got,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We look forward to watching the G.O.A.T., Tom Brady, get his sixth ring, and to a local California charity reaping the benefits of yet another championship for New England.”
Governor Newsom has also wagered his and his staff’s time volunteering at a local California charity.
“I have great respect for Governor Baker and the people of Massachusetts. Our states have so much in common,” said Governor Gavin Newsom. “But by the time the game is over on Sunday I’m confident that Sean McVay and the Rams will have the good people of the Commonwealth crying in their chowder.”
Super Bowl kickoff is at scheduled for 6:30 PM ET on Sunday.
