New York - New York's mayor settled a Stanley Cup wager with Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti by singing "I Love L.A." live on Jimmy Kimmel Monday night.
Following the LA Kings win over the NY Rangers in the series finals Friday night, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio took the mic in Times Square.
Mayor de Blasio was sided by ten members of a student chorus from 52nd Street Project, to fulfill the bet.
According to CTV News, Mayor de Blasio appeared via satellite from ABC studios in NYC while Garcetti joined Kimmel in his Los Angeles studio.
Despite admitting to a poor singing voice, the wager was settled.
Earlier Monday, during the Los Angeles parade for the Kings, Garcetti "made waves," when he dropped the F-bomb, Global News reports.
"There are two rules in politics," Garcetti said at the parade.
"They say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand. And never ever swear. But this is a big fucking day. Way to go, guys."
The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup Finals 3-2 Friday night in double overtime, taking the title with just over five minutes left in the period, playing the longest game in Kings history to date.
The winning goal was scored by Kings defenseman Alec Martinez.
