Police chiefs bet a sandwich over the Stanley Cup

Langer's


William Bratton, the former chief of the LAPD, now runs the NYPD (again.) Charlie Beck worked closely with Bratton here and succeeded him atop the LAPD. Before he left Los Angeles, Bratton said one of the things he would miss is the pastrami at Langer's.

A friendly bet was born.

If the Kings win the Stanley Cup, Bratton will buy lunch for Beck at Katz’s Deli in New York. If the Rangers win, Beck will buy at Langer’s Deli. Says Beck: “It’s too bad that Commissioner Bratton will not be able to enjoy one of his favorite foods!”

Before Wedneday night's game 1, won by the Kings in overtime, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced his own bet with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.

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

If the Rangers win, 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,” Garcetti said. “From the west side to the east side, the Kings will reign. Go Kings Go!”

Garcetti's office said 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.
