U.S. Rep. Alma Adams has placed a hat from her 1,000-plus collection on the line in a Super Bowl wager with her Denver counterpart.
Adams also wagered cookies from the Carolina Cookie Co. in Greensboro, Cheerwine from Salisbury and North Carolina’s famous Bojangles’ chicken and biscuits.
U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette wagered bison burgers and beer from Denver Beer Co.
“The Panthers will be the Super Bowl 50 champions and will take home that Lombardi Trophy,” Adams said in a statement. “I can’t wait to join them at the White House when the president congratulates them. I’m so sure of it, I’m willing to provide Rep. DeGette with a hat from my prized collection.”

DeGette said: “The sweetness of this Broncos victory will go perfectly with a nice plate of North Carolina barbeque.”
