INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 15, 2015)– Governor Mike Pence has declared Friday will be “Believe in Blue Friday” in Indiana to show support for the Indianapolis Colts as they head to New England to compete for the AFC Championship.

Thursday on Twitter, Governor Pence and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker agreed to a friendly wager for the game, which will be played Sunday, January 18 at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts.

With Indiana being a leading state when it comes to pork production, Governor Pence offered to send shredded pork from Shoup’s Country Foods in Frankfort, Indiana, to Governor Baker’s office in the event the Colts should lose.

Should the Patriots lose, Governor Baker will send Boston cream cupcakes from Springfield’s Koffee Kup Bakery as well as a Super Bowl themed cake designed by Brockton’s Montilio’s Baking Company to the Indiana Statehouse.

In addition to the wager between offices, the winning team’s Governor’s office will also receive local food products from the losing team’s state for donation to a food pantry of their choice.
