Latest Super Bowl wager: La. shrimp vs. Indiana steak

The latest Super Bowl wager pits La. shrimp from the Gulf of Mexico against prime Indiana steak.

The Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints will square off in the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 7.

Congressmen Anh “Joseph” Cao of Louisiana and Dan Burton of Indiana decided to bet each other on the winner.

If the Colts win, Cao will ship five pounds of Louisiana Gulf shrimp to Indianapolis. If the Saints win, Burton will ship five pounds of prime Indiana steak to New Orleans.

The representatives offered the following remarks after shaking hands:

“The Saints’ motto all season has been ‘Finish Strong,’ and I expect that is exactly what they’ll do this Sunday in Miami. Congressman Burton, on behalf of the Who Dat Nation, we like our steaks medium rare,” Cao said.

“I very much look forward to enjoying some Louisiana Gulf shrimp,” said Rep. Burton as he purchased cocktail sauce, “and I’m really appreciative to Congressman Cao for offering to supplement our victory party with this dish. Go, Colts!”
