House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took a break from a discussion on job creation Thursday to talk about Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers — more specifically her love for the quarterback’s “big arms” and “tattoos,” CBS reported.

“We love our quarterback, the tattoos, the big arms, the whole deal,” said Pelosi, who also ruminated on the playoff chances for the NFL team with an eight-game winning streak — the longest active run in the league.

“As I say, on any given Sunday anything can happen. The Seahawks fans are a feisty lot. They’re not selling tickets to anybody from California. You have to be from Oregon, Washington or Alaska if you’re on the West Coast. They like making all that noise. It’s a factor,” said Ms. Pelosi.

Pelosi went on to say that she has a “chocolate bet” with Congressional members from Washington state riding on the game.

“It’s amazing what a difference a Sunday makes. We’ll find out on Sunday how it will go. The world of sport is a beautiful thing. It’s so much fun, isn’t it? And it’s not political. It’s just great,” she said.

The San Francisco 49ers play the Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
