The Heartwarming Result of Chris Pratt and Chris Evans’ Epic Super Bowl Bet


In late January, two superhero-playing actors made what’s probably our favorite Super Bowl bet ever.

Chris Pratt, a Seahawks fan, made a little Twitter wager with Chris Evans, a Patriots fan, deciding that the outcome of the big game would determine whether Evans would visit Seattle Children’s Hospital with a Seahawks flag or whether Pratt would wear a Tom Brady jersey at Christopher’s Haven, a home for families battling cancer in Boston.

When the Patriots won last weekend, Pratt, who played Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, graciously accepted defeat — but Evans, from the Captain America films, decided he’d still make an appearance for the kids — we’d expect nothing less from our most patriotic superhero.

On Friday, Pratt donned his Star-Lord costume and visited Christopher’s Haven home for kids with cancer. He posted some awesome photos from the day on his Facebook page.

Evans posed for photos at Christopher’s Haven, too, though not in costume. But Star-Lord and Captain America will also visit the Seattle Children’s Hospital.
