Washington, D.C. - Packers vs. Steelers. Wisconsin cheese vs. Primanti Bros. sandwiches.
In honor of the Feb. 6 Super Bowl featuring the Green Bay Packers versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) have made a tasty wager on the winner of the big game.
Should the Steelers prevail, Sen. Johnson will provide Sen. Toomey with a savory assortment of Wisconsin cheese, bratwurst and beer. But should the Packers emerge victorious, Sen. Toomey will ship Sen. Johnson a delivery of Pittsburgh’s world-famous Primanti Bros. sandwiches, topped with signature French fries, Cole slaw and tomatoes.
“Being frugal and a fiscal conservative, my first thought was to simply re-gift the Chicago-style pizza and Illinois beer that the Packers helped us win from Sen. Kirk, but that wouldn’t highlight the fine products made in Wisconsin. So I have decided to offer Sen. Toomey’s office a generous basket of Wisconsin cheese, brats and beer in the unlikely event that the Steelers prevail over America’s team, the Green Bay Packers,” Sen. Johnson said.
“I’m sure Sen. Johnson would enjoy some of Pittsburgh’s best sandwiches, which taste just as good as the upcoming Steelers’ victory,” Sen. Toomey said.
