PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – When the Steelers take the field against the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday there will be a lot on the line.

Even Diocese of Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik has accepted terms in a friendly wager with Archbishop Edwin O’Brien of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

If the Steelers win, Archbishop O’Brien will make a personal donation to Catholic Charities of Pittsburgh.

He will also have to put on a Steelers jersey and become a fan of the Black and Gold through the rest of the playoffs.

But in the event that the Ravens win, Bishop Zubik pledges to make a personal donation to Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

He would also have to put on the dreaded purple of the Ravens and root for Baltimore as their post-season run continues.

In a press release, Zubik said: “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. Otherwise I will need you to stand with me when I wear the Ravens’ purple and black with a frown on my face.”
