Cicilline makes good on Super Bowl bet

PROVIDENCE, RI – Congressman David Cicilline donned a jersey of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants as part of a bet with a colleague from the Empire State.

Cicilline picked the Patriots to win the Super Bowl. Congresswoman Nan Hayworth of New York picked the Giants.

As part of the bet, Cicilline's office released a photo showing him wearing the jersey of Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

In a statement, Cicilline says he was pained to put on Giants' blue. But he says he's a good sport and wanted to congratulate Giants fans on their victory. He says he's looking forward to seeing the Pats come back next fall.
