Count Jimmy Fallon among those catching the fever of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Tonight Show host and New York resident recently made a bet with the Montreal Canadiens, via twitter, on who will win the Eastern Conference Finals between the Canadiens and New York Rangers.
After some online negotiating, a deal was finally reached between Fallon and the Canadiens ahead of Game 1.
@CanadiensMTL you have to tweet out 10 (different) pics of your mascot walking around Montreal in public wearing a Rangers jersey. ?— jimmy fallon (@jimmyfallon) May 16, 2014
When the bet was made official, the Rangers quickly weighed in on the topic, assuring Fallon that he’d be okay.
