The only sure bet for Super Bowl 50 is that charities in Colorado or North Carolina will win big, thanks to friendly wagers placed by the states' governors.
Should the Panthers win, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) will donate 50 Osprey backpacks filled with school supplies to a North Carolina shelter. Additionally, 50 cases of Pueblo salsa, 500 boxes of 34 Degrees crackers and 500 packages of Continental Sausage will be shipped to a food bank in the state.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) has countered with an offer to donate 50 cases of turkey burgers and 50 cases of turkey sausages, both made by North Carolina-based Butterball, to a Colorado food bank if the Broncos take the game.
McCrory predicted the Panthers will trounce the Broncos, winning with a final score of 33-10.
Both governors have also pledged to donate dog food to an animal shelter if their team loses.
Not to be outdone, the secretaries of state from North Carolina and Colorado have also placed similar bets, with one major difference: They'll donate to a local food bank regardless of the winner, with the donation made in the winning team's honor.
