Congresswoman Dr. Nan Hayworth is putting up cold cuts, ziti and cheesecake in declaring a Giants victory Sunday over the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
The freshman Republican from Mount Kisco has joined New Hampshire Congressman Frank Guinta in a friendly wager over the big game. Should the Patriots lose, Guinta is on the hook for “lobster, maple syrup and Poutine (a French Canadian specialty consisting of French fries topped with curd cheese covered with a spicy chicken gravy).”
“This weekend’s match up will be a great game to watch for fans of both teams who enjoy a tradition of success,” said Hayworth. “I am looking forward to sampling some of New Hampshire’s traditional food after watching the New York Giants bring home a win against the New England Patriots for the second time in the Super Bowl,” Hayworth said.
If the Giant lose, Hayworth will be delivering the following to her colleague from the Granite State.
· Assorted cold cuts platter from Mama Theresa’s Italian Specialties in New Windsor, NY
· Baked Ziti from Dinardos in Pound Ridge, NY
· New York cheesecake from The I-84 Diner in Fishkill, NY
Guinta, who is also in his first term in Congress, is apparently looking forward to his pasta.
” . . . I’m sure that when the Patriots whittle the Giants down to size Sunday evening, the lobster, syrup and poutine won’t be going anywhere. And speaking as someone with a fondness for ziti, I’ll be rooting doubly hard for the Patriots to win!,” he said.
