BOSTON (AP) -
Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has made a friendly sports wager with Indiana's governor over the upcoming AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts.
Baker's office said Friday that if the Patriots win, Gov. Mike Pence will send shredded pork from Shoup's Country Foods in Frankfort, Indiana, to the Massachusetts governor's office.
A Colts victory at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sunday would require Baker to send Pence a "Super Bowl themed cake" from Montilio's bakery in Brockton and Boston Cream Pie cupcakes made at the Koffee Kup bakery in Springfield.
The governor's office of the winning team will also receive food donations from the losing team's state for a local food pantry.
Last weekend, Baker made a bet with Maryland's Gov.-elect Larry Hogan over the Patriots versus the Baltimore Ravens. If the Ravens won, Baker would have provided Hogan with an assortment of Boston's best beers and some Boston Cream Pie cupcakes. But since the Patriots came out on top, Hogan hooked Baker up with an assortment of fresh crabs from Maryland's shore.
