WASHINGTON — One of the most time honored, cheesiest traditions on Capitol Hill is the annual Superbowl bet between lawmakers representing the opposing states. The wagers are normally terrible: a particular micro-beer from one city versus cheese curds, for instance.
This year was to feature the highly anticipated bet between Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi representing San Francisco and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland. But Pelosi, who was born into one of Baltimore’s most infamous political families, has refused thanks to her dual regional loyalties.
This year, Buzzfeed would like to offer any other members considering making a bet on the big game the following potential wagers:
