Someone should tell him that WA also legalized pot

Stolen with no shame from Lookit at SB Nation, I give you Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wearing a Broncos jersey at a press conference that has nothing to do with sports.

The rimshot.

Day made.

    Don’t think it is possible to care any less about Rob Ford.

    Got out a couple of pork tenderloins Saturday with the intention of smoking them Sunday. Just couldn’t do it. You have ruined me, Tim. Ever since you posted this recipe, it is the only way I can eat a pork tenderloin. So simple, so easy, so good.

    Not sure if I should thank you or curse you, but I wanted to let you know.

    If the Broncos lose the Super Bowl it will be all his fault.

    “White Ford Bronco” Ha!


    If the Broncos lose the Super Bowl it will be all his fault.

    Well then Rob Ford will finally have done some good in the world.

    That’s not so much a Broncos jersey as it is a Brocos parachute, cleverly stitched.

    I have never heard of Ziad Fazel before, but in my opinion he has ascended to ranks of genius today.

    All I know is if he wears a Tampa Bay Lightning jersey he’s gonna get run out of Toronto. They take hockey seriously up there.

    @MrSnrub: I was rooting for Seattle anyway, so this just solidifies my decision.

    Anyway, the jersey was more pandering from Ford: the number belongs to Orlando Franklin, who grew up in Scarborough. The more people mock Ford wearing the jersey, the more he can spin it as a dis of a local guy who deserves the city’s support.

    Two basic rules about Rob Ford:

    1) He lies a lot.
    2) He will take every opportunity to look like a persecuted champion of the average Joe, especially those from the inner suburbs.

    Oh, one more point: The Toronto Argos asked him to stop wearing their jersey and he was uninvited to the Grey Cup (our Super Bowl) last fall after his discussed what he likes to eat, where and how much of it last fall — while wearing the Argos jersey.

    Ford was also univited to a Board of Trade dinner that ran last night, but showed up, sulked and got sarcastic on Twitter again. Persecuted Two, Electric Boogaloo.

    Now I know what Twitter is for: this very moment.

    As a lifelong Seattle resident, I’m a little bummed we lost out on Ford’s endorsement. But no matter who wins, either team’s fans can smoke a bowl and be happy….

    @Comrade Mary: I noted Ford’s Argo jersey in (I think) two different appearances before he showed up in SkyDome* for the Eastern Final. Do Torontonians blame him for that loss?

    Among the uniform geeks at Paul Lukas’ Uniwatch community it was front-page news.

    (*I’m still calling it that.)

    @ThresherK: No, we’re used to laying the blame where it belongs. Our sports teams are less than brilliant.

    I knew I luvvered you. :)

    @Bort: Look at it this way: at least we’ll be too slack to riot if there’s massive Seahackitude.

    Washington only “decriminalized” small amounts of pot. Vast difference. Selling and growing are still illegal and the state can reverse course in far less time and with less notice than Colorado can.
