The original bet was that if the Patriots won the Super Bowl, Pratt would visit Boston cancer hospital Christopher’s Haven dressed as Star-Lord. Pratt fulfilled his promise last month, but Evans evidently felt left out because he followed up on his side of the bet anyway. The result is a collection of seriously adorable photos of the two Chrises hanging out with young patients in Seattle.
Before Guardians of the Galaxy even came out, we knew this kind of thing was sure to happen. Pratt admitted all the way back in July 2014 that he had stolen part of his Star-Lord costume with the express purpose of putting smiles on the faces of sick kids. He said:
“If it was a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who’s sick in the hospital for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I’ll do that. I think that’s awesome, man. That would give me real meaning for this movie, you know?”
Evans’ decision to fulfill his half of the bet proves that he has a similar attitude, as he showed up to Seattle Children’s Hospital in full Captain America regalia—plus a beard, which sent certain sections of Twitter into a frenzy.
Can I just say, Chris Evans in the Captain America suit, with the beard, is beyond smoking hot. 👌 😎 pic.twitter.com/PPxIqFbbZZ— Wayward Dreamer ☕☘️🌌 (@aWaywardDreamer) March 8, 2015

The day ended with this characteristically enthusiastic tweet from Evans:
