Any day now Colorado state lawmakers will pay off a bet they lost when the Seattle Seahawks whipped the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl.

At least that’s what they tell state senators in Washington who can’t be faulted if they had thoughts that their legislative counterparts might welch. It’s been more than a month.

Here’s what is expected to be delivered this week:

A non-limited edition CD of “John Denver’s Greatest Hits.”

One six-pack of Dale’s Pale Ale from Oskar Blues Brewery

One six-pack of Milk Stout from Left Hand Brewing Company

One six-pack of frozen tamales from La Casita Restaurant

One bottle of Stranahan’s Whiskey

A dozen bottles of Laughing Lab from Bristol Brewery

One bag of assorted chocolates from Rocky Mountain Chocolates

Two boxes of toffees from Enstrom Candies

An exotic tea sampler box from Ku-Cha Tea House in Boulder

Two lift tickets to Aspen/Snowmass ski areas

One 16-ounce jar of apple butter from White Fence Farm

One 7.5-ounce bag of caramel corn from White Fence Farm

One toy chicken from White Fence Farm

All the items will be auctioned off with proceeds to the Union Gospel Mission in Olympia to help the homeless, according to Carrie Shaw, spokeswoman for the Majority Coalition Caucus.
