Rob Ford Headed for American Radio

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford at the Metro Bowl

Because Rob Ford likes football and talking, and Americans now can’t get enough of Rob Ford, the mayor has picked up a new U.S. gig: talking about football on Washington’s 106.7 The Fan. CBS DC reports that “The Sports Junkies were elated to announce” this new partnership, and the mayor’s chief of staff Dan Jacobs has since confirmed that the mayor will be making NFL picks on air tomorrow morning and then returning on what will probably be a weekly basis…and, yes, this show really is called The Sports Junkies. It appears Rob Ford can’t do anything that isn’t already pretty much a Daily Show bit.

    Rollin’ eyes.

  • Jason Kucherawy

    Wait, how does he have time for this AND also be our mayor?

    • vampchick21

      Because all the mayoring stuff got delegated to Norm Kelly. No one even wants him for the ceremonial stuff.

  • dsmithhfx

    Comedy gold!

    • Brian Young

      Look for clips on Jon Stewart and Jimmie Fallon.

  • Some times I just thinks

    Shouldn’t he be studying the line budget for city hall rather that NFL teams form?

    • vampchick21

      He could study it all he wants, he’ll never grasp any of it. Let him yammer about football, it keeps him off the streets.

    • Brian Young

      He can’t read budget lines. He only knows how to say things like, “I’ve saved the taxpayers over a billion big ones” and “Subways, subways, subways!!!” He mulls these things over in his “head” while pretending to look at any piece of paper put in front of him.

    Does the radio show know that Rob Ford does pretty badly at the office NFL pool for years?

    • HotDang

      I think the love of football is more about having an excuse to drink a lot while eating a pile of junk food and having something to yell about.

  • Brian Young

    So they’ve hired a crack junkie to be on “The Sports Junkies”. Hmmn? Am I being unfair?

  • tyrannosaurus_rek

    When will he relocate to DC?

    • dsmithhfx

      Could have trouble crossing the border.

  • danieljchristie

    Sports Junkies? Why not? After all, the whole Ford clan is more fun than a barrell of junkies, aren’t they?
