Massachusetts Congressman Forced To Wear Eagles Helmet To Hearing After Losing A Bet
3 months ago

Part of us never grows up, even if you're in Congress. Representatives Bob Brady (D-PA) and Michael Capuano (D-MA), for instance, made a bet that played out exactly like it would in junior high. The pair, natives of Philadelphia and Boston, respectively, had a vested interest in the outcome of the Eagles vs. Patriots Super Bowl. They decided to make a bet: whoever's team lost had to go about their congressional duties wearing a football helmet supporting the winner's team.

Representative Capuano got the raw end of the bargain:

As per the terms of their agreement, Rep. Capuano had to wear the Eagles helmet during a meeting of the House Committee on Financial Services. 

Upon seeing the pictures, many Twitter users immediately understood the situation:

And it wasn't just any helmet, either:

It's good to see a congressman following through on a promise:

And it turns out this wasn't the first time one of them wore another team's helmet:

Fellow congressmen and celebrities got a kick out of Rep. Capuano's "attire."

Capuano is looking forward to baseball season. Perhaps next time he won't be tempted to make such a big bet...
