Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC –   Congressman Brendan Boyle (PA-13) ) issued the following statement after entering into a friendly playoff wager with Minnesota Congressman Jason Lewis (MN-02). Congressman Boyle is betting that his Philadelphia Eagles will clinch another playoff-game victory this Sunday in the NFC Championship game against Rep. Lewis’s hometown Minnesota Vikings. The stakes are high--- Philly’s iconic Cheesesteak against Minnesota’s Hormel SPAM (in a can).

“The Philly cheesesteak and SPAM are not even in the same league. The Eagles and Vikings actually ARE in the same league, and the results will not be good for Minnesota.  I have no doubt that my hometown Philadelphia Eagles will emerge victorious this Sunday in the NFC Championship Game in Philadelphia. I look forward to the Eagles playing in  Super Bowl 52. I also look forward to Congressman Lewis’s fresh can of Hormel SPAM on my desk next week”, added Congressman Boyle.

“The Vikings are on a roll, and I can’t wait to take on the Eagles and enjoy a delicious Philly Cheesesteak next week! It’s a shame that Brendan won’t get to experience Hormel spam just yet, but I welcome him to join me in rooting for the Vikings as they march on towards the Super Bowl!”, said Congressman Lewis.
