.- Archbishop Daniel Buechlein of Indianapolis and Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans have made a friendly bet on the upcoming 44th Super Bowl this Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints.

Archbishop Buechlein revealed in an email provided to CNA that, “Archbishop Aymond and I have made a wager on the Saints vs. Colts Superbowl.”

“He receives Southern Indiana pork chops if the Saints win. I receive Gumbo if the Colts win,” he wrote.

Archbishop Buechlein also has a reward planned for his flock, according to the archdiocesan newspaper The Criterion.

The Indianapolis archbishop has declared Monday, February 8, 2010, the day after the Colts play in the Super Bowl, as an official day off for all archdiocesan Catholic schools in the area.

In granting the day off, Archbishop Buechlein praised the Colts for being “strong examples of positive role models and community involvement” and offered the team his gratitude and support.

The Colts have a 14 and 2 win-loss record, while the Saints come into the championship game with a 13 and 3 win-loss record. This Sunday's Super Bowl will start at 6:25 p.m. Eastern Time on CBS.
