LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Mayor Eric Garcetti dropped the “F-bomb” Monday while congratulating the Los Angeles Kings on their victory in the Stanley Cup Final.
The mayor let the expletive slip while hailing the Kings’ 4-1 series win Friday over the New York Rangers.

A post on the official Twitter account for the mayor’s office reflected Garcetti’s comments: “There are a few rules in politics, one is never swear, but this is a #BFD”.
FOX Sports Network broadcaster Patrick O’Neal apologized for the mayor during a lull in the rally. Former player and now Kings president of business operations Luc Robitaille also poked fun at Garcetti, saying, “Well, we told our players not to cuss. Thanks
