The Patriots won Super Bowl LIII three weeks ago, but to Patriots Nation, it sure feels like it happened yesterday. Over the past few weeks, fans of the team have seen the victory payoff as family, friends and West Coast counterparts honor their Super Bowl bets.
Last week the Los Angeles Fire Department remained true to their wager with the Boston Fire Department.
In a video posted to Twitter, the city’s fire chief, Ralph Terrazas, talked about paying their debts. Decked out in a Patriots jersey, he showed off clips of the Flying Elvis fluttering in the breeze over the fire station in downtown Los Angeles as well as on one of their rigs driving around the city. It’s quite the production.
Boston Fire Department Comissioner, Joe FInn, made sure to respond with a pretty good comment.
Would it really be a Super Bowl bet without the police department getting involved? During the World Series the two cities’ police departments put lobster dinner and Langer’s Delicatessen on the line. Chief of Police Michel Moore made the same wager this time around.
Once again, the BPD got the opportunity to enjoy some of LA’s most famous pastrami.
Of course the Boston Police Department made sure to thank their West Coast friends for such an epic lunch.
Those who keep us safe on a daily basis weren’t the only ones to get in on the betting action. Governor of California Gavin Newsom and Massachusetts own Governor Charlie Baker put volunteer hours on the line.
After New England’s victory, Governor Newsom put on a Tom Brady jersey and spent some time in the community giving back to those in need.
Tons of others got in on the fun with friends, family and colleagues and posted it to social media. Check out some of the other bets we found below.
