N.Y., Mass. Governors Place Their Friendly Super Bowl Bets

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — I’ll see your chowda, and raise you a cheesecake.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is betting chips, pies and bowls of New England clam chowder that his Patriots will win Super Bowl XLVI. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is putting bagels, yogurt and cheesecake on the line in support of the Giants.

The bet for Sunday’s NFL championship game highlights regional cuisine that this year will be donated to local food banks.

If the Giants lose Sunday’s game, Cuomo will send 46 cases of New York-made yogurt, 46 dozen bagels from Manhattan’s Ess-a-Bagel and 46 cheesecakes from Junior’s in Brooklyn to a Massachusetts food bank.

If the Patriots lose, Patrick will send 46 pies from The Pie Ladies in Centerville, 46 cases of chips made in Needham Heights and clam chowder from Boston-based Legal Seafoods.

    Even though I want the Pats to win I hope that the Patrick loses.
