L.A. Mayor Celebrates the City’s Stanley Cup Colorfully, de Blasio Makes Good on Bet



Text  



Residents of Los Angeles and New York City may be a little more embarrassed than usual by both of their mayors’ performances following the weekend’s Stanley Cup finals.

After the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers over the weekend, Garcetti took the mic at the team’s rally at the Staples Center on Monday.

“There are two rules in politics: They say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand, and never swear — but this is a big f***ing day,” he told the cheering crowd, holding up a beer.

The network airing the rally later had to issue an apology for Garcetti’s cursing.

Later in the day, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Garcetti and players Alec Martinez and Justin Williams watched as de Blasio made good on a bet by singing and dancing to Randy Newman’s 1983 classic “I Love L.A.” alongside the children’s choir from the 52nd Street Project. De Blasio followed up the performance by giving members of Kimmel’s Los Angeles audience Gray’s Papaya hot dogs.
