The LA Kings’ Stanley Cup victory over the New York Rangers sparked a double-mayor-whammy on Monday.

As The Drudge Report and many others noted, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti dropped the F-bomb at the STAPLES Center portion of yesterday’s parade rally. A few hours later, with Garcetti watching from the Jimmy Kimmel Live couch (alongside Kings players Justin Williams and Alec Martinez), New York mayor Bill de Blasio beamed in from the losing coast to deliver a warbly version of “I Love LA.” All part of a friendly bet with Garcetti.

De Blasio was joined for his Randy Newman rendition by children from the 52nd Street Project. Following his performance, he gifted audience members with hot dogs from New York’s Gray’s Papaya.
