On Sunday the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs will play Super Bowl LIV, and the local ordinaries of the teams have made a friendly wager on the outcome of the game.
The teams will play in Miami Feb. 2.
"These two storied franchises have the pleasure of playing in two vibrant Catholic Dioceses and the bishops chose a friendly wager to reflect the loyal fans, the witness of striving for goals, and the common good of teamwork and community unity," read a Jan. 28 statement from the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
If the Chiefs win, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco will send Dungeness crabs to Bishop James Johnston, Jr. of Kansas City-St. Joseph, while if the 49ers are victorious, Bishop Johston will send steaks from the Kansas City Steak Company to Archbishop Cordileone.
