What’s better than one superhero? Two, of course. And that’s what children’s hospitals in both Seattle and Boston got this past weekend. Prior to the Super Bowl, Chris Evans and Chris Pratt, who you may know better as Captain America and Star-Lord (or Andy Dwyer), were once friends but it took a little game of football to turn these two into hard-core enemies. And by “hard-core,” we mean “the best kind of” enemies.
Pratt is very much a Seattle Seahawks fan while Evans is a New England Patriots supporter. And thanks to some trash-talking on Twitter, the two set up quite the hefty wager: if their team loses, they must visit a children’s hospital in the winning city dressed in full superhero gear and the champion’s colours. And, boy, did they deliver.
Captain America’s Patriots won, and Pratt upheld his end of the bargain. But despite winning the bet, Chris Evans returned the favour this weekend by slipping on his tight body suit and visiting some lovely patients at Seattle Children’s Hospital, accompanied by Pratt of course.
