California, North Carolina congressmen agree to awkwardly video'd bet

Congressmen from California and North Carolina have placed a wager on Sunday's 49ers-Panthers playoff game. New to Niners Nation? Sign up here and join the discussion!

Last week, the mayors of San Francisco and Green Bay agreed to a wager over the result of the Wild Card game between the Packers and 49ers. It was fairly simple, done via press release from the mayor's office. This week, we have another wager, but it adds a little "cheese" to the proceedings (pun slightly intended, Packers fans).

The video above features California Representative Eric Swalwell, and North Carolina Representative Robert Pittenger. Swalwell represents California's 15th district, which includes eastern Alameda County. Pittenger represents North Carolina's 9th district, which includes outer portions of Charlotte, home of the Panthers.

The two congressmen put together a wager featuring Carolina BBQ vs. wine from Livermore Valley. It's amusing for the most part, although the reference to Colin Kaeper-nack made me snicker. It's not quite at the level of Boston Mayor Thomas Menino butchering every sports team and their players, but it's a good start for the young representative. At least they keep us entertained!
