Senators Toomey and Warren wager beer on AFC title game
U.S. Senators Pat Toomey and Elizabeth Warren have placed a bet on the AFC championship game on Sunday, which features Toomey's Pittsburgh Steelers and Warren's New England Patriots.
If the Patriots win Toomey will pay his debt with a case of Penn Pilsner beer, from Pittsburgh, and if the Steelers win Warren will pay her debt with a case of Sam Adams.
“Sunday’s game will be a thrilling match-up of two of the all-time great franchises in the NFL,” said Sen. Toomey. “While it’s hard to play in Foxborough in January, Coach Tomlin has the Steelers on a roll and they are prepared to exact revenge on their AFC nemesis. I am confident that a resurgent Steelers defense can pressure Tom Brady, and on offense, the Killer Bs can carve up the Pats D. Pittsburgh is primed to climb the stairway to seven.”
“The Patriots will get the job done this weekend in their record sixth consecutive AFC championship game appearance,” said Sen. Warren. “Coach Tomlin’s smack talk is just that: all talk--the Pats are a bunch of champions through and through, and I’m looking forward to celebrating another trip to the Super Bowl with all of Patriots Nation.”
