MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI ANNOUNCES BET WITH NEW YORK MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO ON KINGS-RANGERS STANLEY CUP; LOSER TO HELP PERFORM RENDITION OF RIVAL CITY’S SONG ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!

 

LOS ANGELES—Preceding Game 1 of the 2014 Stanley Cup Final, Mayor Eric Garcetti today announced a bet with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio .

If the LA Kings win, Mayor de Blasio will help perform a rendition of Randy Newman’s “I Love LA” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

If the New York Rangers win, Mayor Garcetti will help perform a rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“Looks like another perfect day—for the Kings to take home the Stanley Cup,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said. “From the west side to the east side, the Kings will reign. Go Kings Go!”

“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,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Let’s go Rangers.”

The losing Mayor would also provide hot dogs for Kimmel’s audience—Mayor Garcetti would provide Pink’s Hot Dogs, while Mayor de Blasio would provide hot dogs from Grays Papaya.

Game 1 of the best-of-seven 2014 Stanley Cup Finals will be played tonight, Wednesday, June 4 at 8:00 PM EST, in Los Angeles. Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs week nights at 11:35/10:35 PM CT on ABC.

 

New York, New York by Frank Sinatra

 

These little town blues, are melting away

I’m gonna make a brand new start of it, in old New York

If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere

It’s up to you, New York, New York

 

New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city, that never sleeps

To find I’m a number one, head of the list,

Cream of the crop at the top of the heap.

 

These little town blues, are melting away

I’m gonna make a brand new start of it, in old New York

If I can make it there, I’m gonna make it anywhere

It’s up to you, New York, New York

 

I Love LA by Randy Newman

 

Roll down the window put down the top

Crank up the Beach Boys baby

Don’t let the music stop

We’re gonna ride it till we just can’t ride it no more

 

From the South Bay to the Valley

From the West Side to the East Side

Everybody’s very happy

‘Cause the sun is shining all the time

Looks like another perfect day

 

I love L.A. (We love it)

I love L.A. (We love it)

 

Century Boulevard (We love it)

Victory Boulevard (We love it)

Santa Monica Boulevard (We love it)

Sixth Street (We love it, we love it)

 

I love L.A.

I love L.A.

(We love it)
