Governors Baker, Pence place friendly bet on AFC title game

BOSTON (AP) Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence have made a friendly wager over the AFC championship game between the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts.

Baker said Friday that if the Patriots win, Pence will send shredded pork from Shoup's Country Foods in Frankfort, Indiana, to the Massachusetts governor's office.

A Colts victory at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sunday would require Baker to send Pence a ''Super Bowl themed cake'' from Montilio's bakery in Brockton and Boston Cream Pie cupcakes made at the Koffee Kup bakery in Springfield.

In addition, the governor of the losing state will make a donation to a food pantry in the winning state.

Baker says both he and Pence, a friend and fellow Republican, plan to attend the game.
