PA Chamber, Missouri Chamber to Swap Famous Home State Brews and Foods in Friendly Super Bowl LVII Wager
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs will converge on State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona this weekend for Super Bowl LVII, and whichever club brings home the “W” will also win its respective state chamber bragging rights and some famous regional foods thanks to a friendly wager placed between the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry and the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
If the Chiefs win, the PA Chamber will treat the Missouri Chamber to Yuengling beer, Hershey’s Chocolate, Peeps marshmallow candies and Giorgi mushrooms. If the Eagles win, the Missouri Chamber will treat the PA Chamber to Budweiser beer, Jack Stack’s barbeque, Burger’s Smokehouse ham and sausages and Cherry Mash candies.
“Fly Eagles Fly,” PA Chamber and CEO Luke Bernstein said. “The Eagles have been a powerhouse all season on both sides of the ball, with Jalen Hurts leading our air and ground game supported by the best offensive line in football and future Hall of Fame center – and our favorite Kelce brother— Jason Kelce, combined with our lock-down defense and exciting special teams. Philly has a top tier organization with great leadership top-to-bottom, and one of the passionate fan bases in sports. I have every confidence that the Eagles are bringing the Lombardi trophy back to the City of Brotherly Love. We can’t wait to taste that Kansas City barbeque!”
“I never miss a chance to offer our Missouri products to anyone, but this time Pennsylvania is out of luck,” Missouri Chamber President and CEO Dan Mehan said. “One of the finest assets we ever received from Pennsylvania is Coach Andy Reid, and we are confident that he will lead Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the world-class Kansas City Chiefs team to another Super Bowl Championship! We look forward to enjoying some Philadelphia treats!”
“But, one thing we both agree on, is that Donna Kelce, mother of the Kelce brothers, should stand with her two sons Jason and Travis during the coin toss to get this game started,” Bernstein added.
Super Bowl LVII will kick off at State Farm Stadium at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 12. The Chiefs are trying to win their third Super Bowl in franchise history, while the Eagles are working to earn the Lombardi trophy for the second time in franchise history – and the second time in five years.
