An Avenger versus a Guardian of the Galaxy as Captain America himself, Chris Evans, and Star Lord, Chris Pratt, have made an epic sports wager on the outcome of the upcoming Superbowl. The Seattle Seahawks are supported by Pratt, while Evans is rooting for the New England Patriots. The bet began with some friendly trash talking on Twitter.
The bet began when Chris Evans tweeted Chris Pratt, writing, “Well, well, well, @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy.”
Chris Pratt responded to Evans tweet, replying, “@ChrisEvans We both know there’s only one Captain America and his name is Russell Wilson. #SuperBowlBound #LOB #Repeat.”
Evans had his own reply ready. “@prattprattpratt them’s fighting words,” Evans replied. “Stakes? #whatisaseahawkanyway #somethingtombradyhunts.”
That’s when Pratt replied with the stakes and made it interesting. “@ChrisEvans OK,” Pratt wrote. “Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @Seattlechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.”
Seattle Children’s Hospital has released a press statement regarding the wager. “Thank you to both our superheroes, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, for turning this sports rivalry into an opportunity to help kids. While we will be rooting for our Seattle Seahawks on Super Bowl Sunday, we are thrilled that kids will get a visit from a superhero, no matter the outcome! Seattle Children’s is grateful whenever special visitors take the time to surprise our patients and families. Visits like these spread joy throughout our hospital and can help brighten their stay. Captain America and Star Lord are welcome at Seattle Children’s anytime. Go Hawks!”
