Zoo Bears Pick Super Bowl Coin Toss


(Sponsored by Papa John’s Pizza)

(Pittsburgh) (February 2013)—The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium’s black bears are ‘bearly’ seeing snout to snout this week!  Stanley and Susan, big Steeler fans, are at different ends of their den over who to root for in the Super Bowl. So instead of choosing a Super Bowl winner, our bears will decide who wins the coin toss.

“Bear in mind that Susan and Stanley are super Steeler supporters,” says Kathy Suthard, lead Carnivore keeper. “But they don’t know who to bear their allegiance to in the Super Bowl.”

So they are going for the coin toss with help from Papa John’s Pizza, which team will win the paw-toss? Everyone will have the opportunity to win!

Papa John’s is asking all consumers to call “heads” or “tails” for the Super Bowl XLVII coin toss through 11:59 p.m. PST, Saturday, Feb. 2, the night before the game, at papajohns.com or Papa John’s Facebook page.  Americans who correctly call the coin toss will receive an email Monday, Feb. 4 with instructions on how to claim their pizza. As a bonus, just for voting, fans will get an offer for 35 percent off their next pizza at papajohns.com through February 2.
