Mayor Eric Garcetti Drops F-Bomb on Live TV, & L.A. Kings Fans Go Wild (VIDEO)
Mayor Eric Garcetti is a fairly mild-mannered mayor. Despite his hipster tendencies (he's a fan of superstar DJ Steve Aoki), the guy certainly has a more conservative personal reputation than, say, former Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was caught on-camera partying in Baja with Charlie Sheen.
But today Garcetti is an L.A. hockey bro to the fullest. In his exuberance over the L.A. Kings' Stanley Cup victory, he dropped what appeared to be a somewhat scripted f-bomb on live television.
It happened during the Kings' victory rally at Staples Center. Here's what G-Dogg, holding a bottle of beer, said:
They say never ever be pictured with a drink in your hand and never swear, but this is a big fuckin' day.

The Kings fans, with Staples populated by season-ticket holders, went wild, of course. And so did Twitter. But the rally was covered on live TV, and Fox Sports' Patrick O'Neal had to apologize for the language.
The Federal Communications Commission prohibits such language, and broadcasters who carried the mayor's comments uncensored could be fined.
