Rob Ford plans to attend Sunday’s Bills game in Toronto

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is known for many things, including his decision to wear a tie emblazoned with outdated logos of NFL teams on the day he finally admitted to smoking crack.

That’s not Ford’s only connection to football. He is fond of wearing a Toronto Argonauts jersey with his name on the back, including when denying allegations of sexual impropriety at the workplace by pointing out that he’s married and has plenty to eat at home, and was a high school football coach before becoming making all of our lives a bit more amusing by entering the political arena.

Ford’s love of the gridiron has him planning a visit to Toronto’s Rogers Centre on Sunday to watch as the Bills and Falcons do battle in the city that elected him to its highest municipal office. While Ford has become a well-known figure in recent weeks, Bills coach Doug Marrone had to be told about Ford’s crack smoking when he was asked about Ford’s behavior during a press conference.

“Really? Well I hope that he can find a way to better himself. Last time I checked that’s illegal, so hopefully he can find a way to help himself,” Marrone said, via the Toronto Sun. “I say that for anyone, you don’t have to be the mayor, you could be a guy who is down the street. There are a lot of issues and a lot of challenges in life and I hope that people turn themselves to get help if they think they have a problem.”

While he’s currently dealing with an implosion of a pretty grand scale himself, we’re guessing that Falcons coach Mike Smith won’t be trying to get an audience with Ford to discuss crisis management strategies.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulls a Tomlin and becomes part of the game.

    Shouldn’t he be on the road, trying to save his dad’s brake pad business from going under?

    You would think this moron would want to stay out of the limelight for a little while. I just don’t think he can help himself. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got a DUI on the way to the game or after it.

    As a resident of Toronto, and huge Bills fan,I am not not sure which is the bigger clown show. Mayor Ford or this ridiculous travesty of the Bills playing in Toronto

    This guy is so refreshing! Rob Ford is the man!!

  6. bennyb82 says: Nov 29, 2013 5:59 PM

    He will be the guy who is bent down by any end line rubbing a handful of the white painted grass in his gums.

    The Bills became integrated into the CFL so gradually I never even noticed.

    A better place for him to go would be Denver because there he can feel “Mile High.”

    He’ll probably slide down a railing, fall and crush a family of 5 in the section below…..

    is he going to tailgate, or did he have enough to eat at home?

  11. jhorton83 says: Nov 29, 2013 6:37 PM

    I think it’s a pretty amazing accomplishment to fake your death and become mayor of Toronto. Chris Farley should be commended.

    Rob is fond of wearing a Toronto Argonauts jersey with his name on the back. With his I.Q. score on the front.

    Possumsauce…funniest thing I seen
    all day. Hats off. Lmao

  14. doctorrustbelt says: Nov 29, 2013 7:09 PM

    Rob Ford reminds me of about 92% of all NFL tailgaters.

  15. td40 says: Nov 29, 2013 7:37 PM

    The next coach of the Detroit Lions.

  16. yanksbills says: Nov 29, 2013 7:57 PM

    Hopefully there’s a Dave & Buster’s in Toronto. The Falcons don’t need any serious trouble before the game, and that starts by avoiding any mayoral events.

  17. GrossmanDaSexCannon says: Nov 29, 2013 8:53 PM

    Everyone says Chris Farley, but all I see is Dennis Hopper if he had let himself go…

  18. ssh282001 says: Nov 29, 2013 9:34 PM

    The Bills should be honored anyone wants to watch them play period.

  19. zeddicuszorander says: Nov 29, 2013 9:40 PM

    To his credit…. he’s only the second biggest tool in Toronto.

  20. isabsir says: Nov 29, 2013 9:51 PM

    He shouldn’t be hungry at the game because he’s ‘got plenty to eat at home.’

  21. briang123 says: Nov 29, 2013 10:09 PM

    Shame Ford is not eligible to be President. He is as qualified as the last 2 mopes that have held the office.

  22. vincelombardisghost says: Nov 29, 2013 10:30 PM

    Hey Possumsauce…FUNNY! Now that’s my kind of funny.

  23. happywolverine says: Nov 29, 2013 10:58 PM

    Rob Ford is the man. A populist right leaning mayor who spanked the hard left wing nanny staters that pushed Toronto to the brink of bankruptcy and suffacated it with a juggernaut of bans and bylaws

    I suspect the anti-Ford comments here are from socialist fools that should find another sport to follow other than American football. Aren’t you clowns part of the Toronto left wing elitists that hate Americans after all?

    Rob Ford for mayor 2014! Lets get it done

  24. easywolf says: Nov 29, 2013 11:30 PM

    What a dumb fat crackhead

  25. fansincebirth says: Nov 30, 2013 12:56 AM

    Is there anything greater than this guy’s off the wall exploits over the last 2-3 weeks? How tremendous was his running across the room and almost tackling that poor woman? Or, how about him making the drinking signs with his hands behind the back of that council person? Best ever!

  26. ajgreenhof says: Nov 30, 2013 12:59 AM

    When will this guy get his own MTV show?

  27. tonyc920 says: Nov 30, 2013 1:28 AM

    Nah, It’s Farley !

  28. joetoronto says: Nov 30, 2013 4:36 AM

    Look at all the sheep, believing everything the liberal media is spewing.

    This man exposed the socialist members of council, stealing taxpayer money and it’s been a witch hunt since then.

    Now, they’re petrified he’s going to win again, and he will. Ford more years!

    You are what’s wrong with the world. Not because of what you think but why you think it. People who identify themselves as left or right are people who can’t think for them selves. You’re simply a puppet. Toronto left wing elitists? Who talks like that? Get real buddy!
