It’s a tradition for the Catholic bishops from the two cities sending teams to the Super Bowl to make a friendly wager before the big game.
With the Kansas City Chiefs back in their fourth Super Bowl in five years and the San Francisco 49ers making their first appearance since 2020, Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph Bishop James Johnston and San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone made their friendly wager on “EWTN News in Depth” with Montse Alvarado on Friday.
“I think we’ve got a good one. And the archbishop and I have agreed that it’s going to be a two-parter if we lose,” Johnston said.
“If the Kansas City Chiefs lose, which is highly unlikely, but if we should, I’ll be sending Archbishop Cordileone a gift pack from our American Jazz Museum. We’re noted not only for barbecue but also jazz. And I understand the archbishop loves jazz,” Johnston said.
