A night after winning the first Lord Stanley Cup in the 45-year history of the club, the Los Angeles Kings appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and let the host drink some beer from the esteemed trophy.
The subdued (hungover?) squad appeared— wearing Kings' jerseys— on the show Tuesday night and, after Kevin Westgarth prompted Kimmel to take a swig of beer from the huge chalice, the host asked, "You guys didn't pee in this thing?"
After defenseman Willie Mitchell poured the brew down Kimmel's throat and even more over his suit, Kimmel proclaimed, "It tastes like victory."
Kimmel— a real hockey fan— goofed around with the team and mentioned that all the players will get their name engraved into the Cup before asking if the New Jersey Devils' player Steve Bernier would get his name etched on the trophy too. Bernier was criticized for his five-minute major for boarding Rob Scuderi and allowing the Kings to jump out to a three-goal lead the Devils couldn't overcome.
The eighth-seeded Kings won their first championship by crushing the Devils 6-1 Monday night to take the championship series four games to two.
Now each player from the winning team will get to keep the trophy for one day and eat or drink whatever they want from its bowl for 24 hours.
I'm betting on a lot of Molson and kid's cereals.
