Pelosi and Israel Announce Friendly Wager on NFC Championship Game

Washington, DC - Today, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Steve Israel announced the details of a friendly wager over the NFC championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants.  As passionate fans and competitive colleagues, the Members of Congress agreed to a battle for bragging rights and local delicacies.

If the 49ers win, Congressman Israel will supply Pelosi with pizza from Dalisa Pizza, located in North Babylon, New York.  If the Giants win, Pelosi will provide Israel with some of San Francisco's famous Ghirardelli Chocolates. 

'San Francisco's Ghirardelli chocolate will be safe from Congressman Israel: the 49ers are going all the way,” Pelosi said.  “I look forward to eating New York pizza while watching San Francisco win the Super Bowl.”

“Leader Pelosi has asked me to win back the House, but I'm confident that she'll lose this bet.  The Giants will win, and Ghirardelli Chocolate will be my just desserts.”
