Connecticut’s Senators and the senators from Indiana expect to be watching tonight’s NCAA Men’s Championship game along with other UConn and Butler fans. And they’ve added a wager of food products from their home states to show their loyalty.

Senators Joe Lieberman and Richard Blumenthal bet Pepperidge Farm products baked in Bloomfield that the UConn Huskies will win.  If the Butler Bulldogs lose,  Indiana Senators Richard Lugar and Dan Coats will send a case of “Cousin Willie’s Popcorn” from Ramsey Popcorn Company in Ramsey, Indiana.
