You lost the Super Bowl, so pay up Colorado lawmakers!
Rep. Cory Gardner is down with some Rocky Mountain oysters.
Mr. Gardner and other members of the Colorado congressional delegation woke up Monday morning on the losing end of a Super Bowl bet with some of their Washington counterparts.
The Republican lawmaker had wagered the “oysters” — also known as bull calf testicles — as part of a friendly bet with Washington lawmakers before Super Bowl XLVIII where the Seattle Seahawks smoked the Denver Broncos by a score of 43-8.
Rep. Diana DeGette, a Democrat, bet Stranahan’s Whiskey and Tamales, Rep. Jared Polis, a Democrat, bet Celestial Seasonings Tea, and Rep. Scott Tipton, a Republican, bet Enstrom Toffee.
GOP Rep. Doug Lamborn, meanwhile, waged “2 locally sourced, hormone and antibiotic-free Callicrate Beef sirloin steaks from Ranch Foods Direct,” while Reps. Mike Coffman, a Republican, and Ed Perlmutter, a Democrat, each put up a six-pack of beer.
