Pittsburgh Catholic Bishop David Zubik has made a “friendly wager” with his counterpart in Baltimore on the outcome of the Steelers-Ravens playoff game on Saturday.

"In the unlikely event that the Ravens win,” Zubik said in a statement issued today, “I will make a personal donation to Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.”

Should Steelers win, Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien of the Archdiocese of Baltimore will make a personal donation to Catholic Charities of Pittsburgh.

If the Steelers win, Zubik challenged O’Brien to wear a Steelers jersey and root for them through the Super Bowl.

Zubik has agreed to root for the Ravens and wear their jersey,

“Though I can’t imagine where in the greater Pittsburgh area that I would be able to find a Ravens jersey. Given that I would find it most difficult to don a Ravens jersey, all the more reason for me to ask Steeler fans to pray for a convincing victory,” Zubik said.
