Brooklyn legislators make friendly wager with Massachusetts rep

Senator Golden and Assemblywoman Malliotakis don their Giants gear in advance of their Super Bowl wager with Massachusetts representative.

Senator Martin Golden (R,C,I-Brooklyn) and Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C-Brooklyn, Staten Island) are backing up their New York pride with a friendly Super Bowl wager between themselves and a Massachusetts representative. The pair from New York are so confident that the Giants will defeat the Patriots on Sunday that they are putting three staples of Brooklyn’s favorite foods on the line; a cheesecake from Junior’s on Flatbush Avenue, hot dogs and fries from Nathan’s, and the fixings for chocolate egg creams from Hinsch’s Confectionary in Bay Ridge.

Senator Marty Golden stated, "I will be in Brooklyn this Superbowl Sunday, and like all New Yorkers, will be rooting for the New York Giants. I am excited to wager this friendly bet with my colleagues in the Massachusetts State Legislature, and I look forward to enjoying my ‘New England Feast’.”

“We all remember Eli and Big Blue marching to victory against the Patriots in 2007, and we all know this year will be no different,” said Malliotakis. “My only regret is that our counterpart in Massachusetts won’t get to taste the delicious Brooklyn desserts we’ve wagered, because we’ll be tasting victory with another Super Bowl trophy for the Giants.”

When the Giants win, Golden and Malliotakis will receive a New England style dinner for two, courtesy of Massachusetts State Representative F. Jay Barrows. The meal will include Two 1.25 lb-1.50 lb live Legal Lobsters, one quart of New England Clam Chowder, two individual Boston Cream Pies, oyster crackers and a cooking instructions pamphlet. Rep. Barrows hails from the 1st Bristol District, which includes Gillette Stadium, the Patriots home playing field in Foxborough.
