Chris Evans and Chris Pratt Make a Super Bowl Bet

New, comments

A bit of nice news amidst all the nonsense.

If I'm going to be bombarded by articles that make me forget about the fact that there is a football game coming up, I prefer it to be about something positive.

Actor Chris Evans, known to most as Captain America, sent the following Tweet to his good friend and fellow actor Chris Pratt:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Well, well, well <a href="https://twitter.com/prattprattpratt">@prattprattpratt</a>, looks like our teams are going into battle. For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy</p>&mdash; Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/557276465926926337">January 19, 2015</a></blockquote>

Pratt, never one to back down from a direct challenge, fired right back:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans">@ChrisEvans</a> We both know there&#39;s only one Captain America and his name is Russell Wilson. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SuperBowlBound?src=hash">#SuperBowlBound</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/LOB?src=hash">#LOB</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Repeat?src=hash">#Repeat</a></p>&mdash; chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) <a href="https://twitter.com/prattprattpratt/status/557281162733699073">January 19, 2015</a></blockquote>

Here's where it starts getting good.

A pretty awesome bet between some pretty awesome guys. Needless to say, here's hoping all those wonderful children at Christopher's Haven have a very special visit to look forward to in a few weeks.
