Gov. John Hickenlooper is making a bet with North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory that the Broncos will bring home the win.
What’s on the line?
Pueblo chile, of course. If the Broncos lose, North Carolina recieves 50 cases of Pueblo salsa made with Pueblo’s famous chiles, provided by green chile experts Milberger Farms and Musso Farms.
The governor credited Pueblo County and the Pueblo Chamber of Commerce with inserting chiles into the wager.
Also included in Hickenlooper’s bet is 50 Osprey backpacks filled with school supplies to be donated to a shelter, 500 boxes of crackers from 34 Degrees Crackers and 500 packages of sausages from Continental Sausage to be donated to a food bank in North Carolina. Hickenlooper will also make a donation to an animal shelter.
The Carolina Panthers are certainly a formidable foe, but they will simply be another challenge that our Broncos will overcome in Super Bowl 50.
What do we get if/when we win? 50 50 cases of North Carolina turkey burgers and 50 cases of North Carolina turkey sausages to a Colorado food bank, and will add a donation of dog food to an animal shelter. The turkey products will be provided by North Carolina-based Butterball, LLC.
“This Broncos team has proven time and time again that they know how to overcome challenges,” said Hickenlooper in a statement. “The Carolina Panthers are certainly a formidable foe, but they will simply be another challenge that our Broncos will overcome in Super Bowl 50. Peyton Manning, DeMarcus Ware, Pat Bowlen and the entire Broncos team deserve a championship to cap a season that will be remembered as nothing short of magical.”
McCrory said he and Hickenlooper are good friends, but the Panthers will prevail with a predicted final score of 33-10.
“The Broncos may have one of the best defenses in the league, but they haven’t faced Cam Newton and his offense yet,” Mccrory said. “I fully expect the Carolina Panthers to be Super Bowl 50 Champions.
