Looks like Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a beef with the Mayor of Los Angeles.
Emanuel placed a wager on the Chicago Blackhawks this weekend, offering Mayor Atoniono Villaraigosa some hometown favorites, including 25 Italian beef sandwiches from Al’s Italian Beef, if the Kings beat the Hawks in this best-of-seven series.
In a letter to Mayor Villaraigosa, Emanuel states:
“In every stage of these Playoffs our Blackhawks have advanced in the most humble fashion: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury by your Kings. Kings, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, are unfit to be the champion of the NHL, and should be relegated to ‘Ye Olde Sin Bin.’
“I, therefore, the Representative of the People of Chicago, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions (in this case NHL commissioner Gary Bettman), do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of this fair City of Big Shoulders, solemnly publish and declare that we will offer the following bounty, payable only if your Kings find way to defeat our Blackhawks in the forthcoming best-of-seven series that will commence today.”
