It's Chocolate vs Cheese as Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Jay Johnson Bet on the Outcome of Sunday's NFC Championship Game

January 8, 1998

Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA/49ers Fan) is wagering 4.9 pounds of San Francisco's famed Ghirardelli Chocolate on the outcome of Sunday's NFC Championship Game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers. Rep. Jay Johnson of Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District, home to the Packers, will wager 4.9 pounds of Wisconsin's finest cheese.

"The Packers have a good team, but they can pack it in when it comes to our 49ers," Pelosi said. Rep. Johnson is betting that history is on his side. "It will be a battle, but the Packers have eliminated the 49ers each of the last two years, and I'm predicting a third," Johnson said.

The 49ers and the Packers play at 3Com Park in San Francisco on Sunday. The teams have identical 14-3 records, including post season play.
