While Washington deals with freezing temperatures this Sunday, Super Bowl XLIV will kick off in sunny Miami Gardens, Florida, as the New Orleans Saints take on the Indianapolis Colts. But the snow has not dampened football fans’ spirits, and even a few senators are betting on the outcome.
What’s at stake?
Well, a win for the Saints in their first ever Super Bowl appearance means Bayh will be bringing Landrieu and her constituents Indiana popcorn, a local favorite.
“I’m predicting that the Saints will pull out a 35-31 victory,” Landrieu said. “I’m not really sure what Indiana popcorn is, but I’ve never been more excited to eat it.”
But if the more seasoned Colts, who enter with a 2-1 Super Bowl record, rise to victory, Landrieu will be serving up red beans and rice to Bayh and his constituents.
