Earlier this month, TwitterBowl was launched when a wager was made between two Marvel superhero actors — Boston, MA, native and New England Patriots fan Chris Evans aka Captain America, and Lake Stevens, WA, resident and Seattle Seahawks fan Chris Pratt aka Star-Lord.
But what started out as a seemingly bitter rivalry quickly turned into a charity event: If the Patriots win, Pratt as Star-Lord will visit Christopher’s Haven in Boston, MA; if the Seahawks win, Evans as Captain America will visit Seattle Children’s Hospital in Seattle, WA.
Tonight, the two actors are in Glendale, AZ, at the University of Phoenix Stadium watching their teams face off in the Super Bowl. Check out the photos of Pratt and Evans together at the game here below.
Also, for a limited time, Teefury is offering up a Marvel-themed Super Bowl XLIX charity t-shirt called Chris vs Chris for only $11 in a design that pits Captain America (The Avengers) against Star-Lord (Guardians Of The Galaxy). The shirt will be available for sale through February 10, 2015, and a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the two aforementioned charities.
Both actors seem like hardcore fans of their respective teams, but they seem even more intense about their respective charities, which is pretty awesome. No matter which team wins the Super Bowl, these two wonderful charities have already won, thanks to the donations and publicity this superhero wager has brought. And regardless of who wins, I have a feeling both actors will show up for the children.
UPDATE 2/1/2015 10:15pm: The New England Patriots won the game, which means that Chris Evans wins the Super Bowl bet! No official statements from either actor yet, but according to the terms of the wager, Chris Pratt will now have to visit Christopher’s Haven in Boston, MA, as Star-Lord and wearing a Tom Brady (Patriots quarterback) jersey. It’s a given that Pratt will show up as Star-Lord, but let’s see if that last part happens.
