A Calgary mayor always repays his debts.
Earlier this month the Anaheim Ducks eliminated the Calgary Flames from the Stanley Cup playoffs. This not only meant heartbreak for Flames fans, but also that Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi lost a friendly bet to Anaheim mayor Tom Tait.

The bet involved singing a song during a council meeting while wearing the opposing team’s jersey.
Nenshi, donning an old-school Ducks jersey, fulfilled his end of the bargain Monday. He said he is terrified of singing in public so he enlisted the help of local acapella group the Heebee-Jeebees and some kids wearing Flames gear to assist him.
Good luck getting this song out of your head.
More important than Nenshi’s inspiring rendition of that Academy Award-winning track from the hit film Frozen, the bet also involved bringing awareness to local charities. Nenshi will donate an unspecified amount of money to Accelerate Change Together, a youth project in Anaheim.
