It was a bet over the Super Bowl that brought two superheroes to Seattle Children's. The hospital released photos of the visit by Chris Evans (Captain America) and Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) over the weekend, and now we are hearing from some of the kids on the receiving end of that surprise. Fourteen-year-old Tyler Gower was a fan long before the superheroes walked into his hospital room. In fact, a superhero blanket sits on his bed. He says that's the first thing Evans and Pratt noticed.
