KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Police Department bomb and arson squad have paid their debt to the Tampa Regional Bomb Squad after the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV in February.

The two explosives divisions wagered for the losing squad to take photos wearing the winning team’s shirts and posing in front of their respective home stadiums flying the opposition’s flag.

In addition, the Tampa squad will be receiving a framed version of the photo.

“It’s never to late to make good on a bet,” the Tampa Bay Police Department tweeted in response.

The bet is something the Kansas City squad is familiar with after making the same bet with San Francisco police in 2020 for Super Bowl LIV.

The Chiefs came out on top that time and KCPD said they have a framed picture of SFPD in Chiefs colors.
