Baker says he's looking forward to a California charity "reaping the benefits of yet another championship for New England."

Newsom responded that he's confident the Rams will have Massachusetts residents "crying in their chowder."

The Super Bowl LIII kicks off Sunday afternoon from Atlanta and will be broadcast by CBS on KPIX 5 in San Francisco.
