Sen. Kerry Stands Behind New England Patriots, Challenges Indiana Sen. Bayh to Put His Caramel Corn Where His Mouth Is
Senator Kerry (D-Mass.) today made a bet with his colleague from Indiana, Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), predicting that the Patriots would beat the Colts this Sunday in the American Football Conference (AFC) Championship game. Kerry offered to present Bayh and his staff with a hearty helping of Boston clam chowder if the Patriots lose this weekend in Indianapolis. In exchange, Bayh agreed to provide Kerry's camp with an old Hoosier State favorite - South Bend Factory Chocolate Crunch, caramel corn drizzled with milk chocolate - if the Colts fall to the Patriots in this weekend's game.
"The only thing I love more than watching the Patriots play is watching them beat the Colts," Kerry said. "Overcoming an injury-plagued season, the Patriots have managed another outstanding finish - fighting their way into the playoffs and containing one of the most potent offenses in the league."
The friendly bet follows the Patriots' win this past weekend against the heavily-favored San Diego Chargers.
