Crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford took in a game of sport today, stopping by the NFL's big Toronto game to watch the Buffalo Bills play the Atlanta Falcons.
But, as with all things Rob Ford, it was not without controversy.
Rob Ford is sitting in my seat at the Bills game. He stole my seat. I don't know what to do.— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
I'm by myself. I gotta kick him out right? I mean I would kick anyone else out... Am I wrong?— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
The mayor stole my f@#%ing seat man!!— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
Fortunately, Mays was able to take back what was rightfully his:
Got my seat back.— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
Incidentally, one of Mays' biggest hits is called "Cocaine Cowgirl."
Meanwhile, one reporter -- WGRZ Buffalo's own Maryalice Demler -- got a chance to talk to Ford and liked what she heard. In a (now-deleted) tweet, she posed for a photo with Ford and called him a "sweetheart of a guy & a Bills fan!"
@chrishorvatits Had a nice chat. Down to earth. Sounded sincere. Loves the Queen City. I don't judge.— Maryalice Demler (@WGRZmaryalice) December 1, 2013
Hey folks, talked off the record for few minutes w/Mayor Ford. Shared some insight. Seemed genuine. Not what I expected. @WGRZ— Maryalice Demler (@WGRZmaryalice) December 2, 2013
Guess Ford's still got it.
The AP says he's interested in attending an NHL game on January 1, so if you have a ticket to that make sure you arrive early and never leave your assigned seat.
The Bills lost the game in overtime.
