A feast fit for a king and queen, or two U.S. senators. Maryland senators Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin received a box of goodies from California, following a Super Bowl bet they made with two colleagues from the Golden State.
They made the bet with California senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein over whether the Ravens or 49ers would win the Super Bowl. If the California lawmakers lost, they would have send Dungeness crabs, Napa Valley wine, sourdough bread and northern California cheese to Mikulski and Cardin.
Even though the Ravens beat the 49ers 34 to 31, both Maryland senators didn't gloat and said that both teams played very well, even in the last minutes of the game.
