Garcetti Bets NY Mayor On Kings-Rangers Stanley Cup Final, Loser To Perform On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Mayor Eric Garcetti Wednesday announced the wager he made against New York Mayor Bill de Blasio preceding game 1 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.
The loser of the bet will help perform a rendition of the rival city’s song on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
If the LA Kings beat the New York Rangers, de Blasio will sing Randy Newman’s “I Love LA”; while if the New York Rangers win, Garcetti will perform a rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York”.
“Looks like another perfect day for the Kings to take home the Stanley Cup,” Garcetti said. “From the west side to the east side, the Kings will reign. Go Kings Go!”
The losing mayor will also provide hot dogs for Kimmel’s audience — Garcetti’s would be from Pink’s Hot Dogs, while de Blasio would be from Grays Papaya.
“Start spreading the news, it’s been over 20 years since the Stanley Cup has found its home in New York City, and we look forward to it making its way here,” de Blasio said. “Let’s go Rangers.”
Game 1 of the best-of-seven series will be played at the STAPLES Center Wednesday at 5 p.m. PST.
