If Evans' team loses (Patriots), then he will visit Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America and will be waving the 12th man flag. If the Seahawks lose, look for Pratt to visit Boston’s Christopher Haven cancer support center dressed as the Guardian of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord wearing a Tom Brady jersey.
