Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi Representing San Francisco, and Congressman Emanuel Cleaver Representing Kansas City Announce Friendly Wager on Super Bowl
February 11, 2024 - San Francisco – Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi, who represents San Francisco, and Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II, who represents Kansas City, announced a friendly wager on the outcome of the Super Bowl. When the 49ers win, Congressman Cleaver will send Speaker Emerita Pelosi’s office a platter of Kansas City barbecue. If the Chiefs win, Speaker Emerita Pelosi will send Congressman Cleaver’s office a variety of See’s Candies and Ghirardelli chocolates.
“The 49er Faithful know that this year is our year!” Speaker Emerita Pelosi said. “For five months straight, we have seen dazzling playmaking by Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey, a stout and suffocating defense, and commanding leadership by Coach Shanahan. Now, after a dominant season, our team has shown we have the talent, the grit and the determination to win it all. On Sunday night, San Francisco will hoist the Lombardi Trophy in Vegas – and soon after, my office will savor some Kansas City victory barbecue, courtesy of Congressman Cleaver.”
“I have the utmost respect for Speaker Emerita Pelosi and all that she’s done for the nation, but I have even greater respect that she’s willing to share more of those delicious chocolates from San Francisco; Because we all know that this isn’t really a rematch—it’s a replay,” said Congressman Cleaver. “Just as you never bet against the American people, I’ve been saying for years that you should never bet against Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Andy Reid, and the rest of the Chiefs. I had hoped Speaker Emerita Pelosi had learned that in 2020, but we’re happy to provide another lesson!”
The 49ers take on the Chiefs on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. PT in Las Vegas.
