The Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings were honored on Monday with a parade through the streets of LA and a rally at the Staples Center. In traditional fashion, the mayor of the city gave fans a pep talk and spoke about how proud of the team he is. However, LA mayor Eric Garcetti’s speech was a bit different from most.
Garcetti stole the show by dropping a premeditated F-bomb.
“There are two rules in politics,” he said. “They say never, ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear. But this is a big f—in’ day. Way to go, guys.”
Garcetti held up an aluminum Bud Light bottle as he dropped the F-bomb, so I guess he felt the occasion called for breaking both rules.
Kings president of business operations and hockey Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille was later called upon to address to crowd.
“Well, we told our players not to cuss,” Robitaille said jokingly. “Thanks.”
That’s certainly one way to secure some votes for reelection.
