New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio paid his debt to Los Angeles after the Rangers lost to the Kings, singing “I Love L.A.” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night.
“Jimmy, I always wanted to meet you, but not like this man,” de Blasio said, wearing a black “I Love LA” T-shirt.
“We New Yorkers honor our bets, but I don’t have that great a singing voice,” de Blasio said, as he was joined in the singing with a student chorus.
“Mayor de Blasio, you look like a counselor at the worst camp ever,” Kimmel joked after the performance.
The Los Angeles crowd also got Gray’s Papaya hot dogs from New York.
Garcetti ripped Gray Papaya, the city staple, saying he prefers California’s Pink’s Hot Dogs.
“I’m going to stick with Pink’s. They make those Gray’s Papaya hot dogs taste like a steaming bag of New York garbage,” Garcetti joked.
Garcetti had, um, a lot to say after the Kings won the series in five games Friday night. At the team’s rally yesterday, he said: “There are two rules in politics. They say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand. And never ever swear. But this is a big f—ing day. Way to go, guys.”
No word yet on when Gov. Andrew Cuomo will make good on his pledge to send a basket of New York products to Gov. Jerry Brown, along with a hockey puck after New York passed its third on-time budget last year.
And if the Rangers won, New York would have gotten rice cakes — some there’s some solace in the Rangers loss.
