Lieutenant Governors Put Friendly Wager on Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:
OLYMPIA, WA - Lt. Governor Brad Owen says he is "all in" for Super Bowl XLIX, putting up a friendly wager with his counterpart in Massachusetts to send premium Washington treats in the "unlikely event" of a Patriots win.

"We feel we can be extremely generous with our offer because it is a wager that we won't have to pay," Owen said. "Go Hawks!"

On the table for his bet with Lt. Governor Karyn Polito of Massachusetts is:

- A magnum bottle of Quilceda Creek wine, to be donated and signed by the vintners at the Snohomish-based winery known for its world-class products.

- An assortment of packaged smoked salmon,  albacore tuna, herbal tea, a "Paddle to Quinault" plush throw and wooden decorative carvings, all courtesy of the coastal Quinault Indian Nation in Taholah.

- A box of superior Washington apples, courtesy of Yakima Senator Curtis King and Kershaw Fruit.

"For their part - and we are confident we will collect - Lt. Governor Polito has committed to sending an assortment of craft beer from Wormtown Brewery and a box of cannoli (an Italian pastry) from Wholly Cannoli, both products of Worcester," Lt. Governor Owen said.

In addition the lieutenant governors have agreed to make a donation to a local food bank in the winner's state.

Owen has already collected on his wager with Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch of Wisconsin over the NFC Championship Game between the Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers. Kleefisch sent an assortment of cheese, brats and beer.
