WASHINGTON — No Michael Crabtree-Richard Sherman rivalry here.

A smiling House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday afternoon made good on the bounty she promised Washington congressional Democrats if the Seattle Seahawks eliminated the San Francisco 49ers from their Super Bowl march.

Nine days after the 49ers’ defeat, Pelosi invited six of her colleagues from Washington state to her office to collect their goody baskets. The baskets varied in style, but all held two loaves of San Francisco sourdough bread from Boudin’s Bakery and chocolate from Ghirardelli and TCHO.

Had the Seahawks lost, the Washington Democrats — Reps. Rick Larsen, Suzan DelBene, Adam Smith, Denny Heck, Jim McDermott and Derek Kilmer — would have forked over assorted delicacies. They ranged from perennial favorite, smoked salmon, from DelBene to craft gin from Everett’s Bluewater Distilling to Bremerton’s Amy’s Decadent Chocolates from Kilmer.
