Mayor of Toronto Takes a Hilarious Digger While Playing Football

Rob Ford is the mayor of Toronto. Rob Ford likes football. Rob Ford tried to play football. Rob Ford didn’t do so good at football. Rob Ford fell down. Rob Ford went boom.

The mayor took an embarrassing spill last monthwhile attending a pep rally for the Toronto Argonauts (of the CFL) and, luckily for all of us, it was captured on video for our viewing pleasure. And, yes, I too just found out that Canadian professional teams have “pep rallies.” I thought those were reserved for high school sports…

To Ford’s credit, he might not be good at football (or standing up, for that matter) but at least he was a good sport about his hilarious fall. When asked about it he said “I’ve got a lot of padding.”

Oh Canada, stick to hockey.
