With the Seattle Seahawks set to face the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Washington House Delegation, including Rep. Suzan DelBene, extended a wager with the Colorado House Delegation.

With a Seahawks victory, the Colorado House delegation will provide an array of regional treats to Washington members.

“It’s often said that championships are won with defense, and we couldn’t agree more. The last time the Seahawks played a Manning at MetLife stadium, our number one ranked defense led by the ‘Legion of Boom’ forced 5 interceptions and gave up exactly zero points,” said the Washington delegation. “With that in mind, we’d like to thank the Colorado delegation’s very generous contribution to the victory party that we’ll be holding on Feb. 3. Go Hawks!”

In the highly unlikely event the Broncos are victorious, the delegation has put together a package of some of Washington’s specialties.

“My Colorado colleagues and I are proud to offer up some of our state’s fantastic beverages and food for our friends from Washington,” said Representative Diana DeGette (01-Colo.), on behalf of the Colorado delegation.  “With the Denver Broncos on the verge of capturing their 3rd Lombardi Trophy, we are looking forward to enjoying the best that Washington state has to offer.”
