Maryland's U.S. Senators, Ben Cardin and Barbara Mikulski, have bet their California counterparts Faidley's crab cakes, Berger cookies and Heavy Seas beer that the Ravens will win. Mikulski even threw in a can of hairspray.
The senators wrote in their challenge, "We're looking forward to a great game. While the 49ers may come in red and gold, they'll be seeing nothing but purple when they leave!"
