The Los Angeles Kings held their second Stanley Cup parade in three seasons on Monday, continuing their celebrations from Friday's night Game 5 victory over the New York Rangers. Hours after their victory rally at Staples Center, Cup-winning goal scorer Alec Martinez and Conn Smythe Trophy winner Justin Williams headed to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' with the hardware.
Joining Martinez and Williams on set was Phil Pritchard, one of the Hockey Hall of Fame's keepers of the Cup, who told Kimmel about the many things players cannot do during their day with the Cup.
One of the things they can do, apparently, is turn the Cup into a giant margarita bowl.
It's already been an eventful couple days for the Cup. Martinez and TSN's Cabbie filled the bowl with M&Ms on Friday night, now we have margaritas. At some point this summer there will likely be chocolate milk in there again, courtesy of Dustin Brown's kids. Pritchard and his fellow Cup keepers have hopefully stocked up on soap for the summer ahead.
Monday wasn't just about the Kings celebrating, it was also Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti's day to shine. After dropping an F-bomb during the rally portion of the festivities at Staples Center, he then joined Martinez and Williams on Kimmel to watch mayor of New York Bill de Blasio make good on their Stanley Cup bet.
Live from New York, it was Bill de Blasio singing Randy Newman's "I Love LA":
At the least audience, while sitting through a performance that was a pair of yoga pants away from challenging Harrison Mooney, benefited with the handout of delicious hot dogs from New York City's Gray's Papaya afterward.
Hopefully they all washed down those New York dogs with some of that leftover margarita.
