NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The mayors of New York City and Los Angeles have agreed on a wager for the Stanley Cup finals.

And, as promised, it’s a doozy.

The losing city’s top politician will be forced to sing in shame on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and provide hot dogs for the entire audience, according to a statement released by NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will sing the Frank Sinatra classic “New York, New York” if the underdog Rangers beat the Kings for the Stanley Cup.

“Start spreading the news, it’s been over 20 years since the Stanley Cup has found its home in New York City, and we look forward to it making its way here,” de Blasio said in a statement. “Let’s go Rangers.”

If the Kings come out on top, de Blasio will belt out Randy Newman’s “I Love LA.”

“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!”

The best-of-seven series begins Wednesday night in Los Angeles.
