You Won’t Believe Which Crack-Smoking Canadian Mayor is Getting a D.C. Radio Gig


D.C.'s got a new mayor in town, and his blemished past could give any of this town's own beleaguered politicos a run for their money.

Toronto's Rob Ford, who apparently has a lot more free time these days now that he's been stripped of most of his executive powers, will be joining local radio show The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan every Thursday at 8:40 a.m., CBS announced today. He'll talk sports and give NFL picks.

Through his lying, crack-smoking admission, and offensive comments about women, Ford's dedication to sports has not wavered.

He wore an old NFL tie to the press conference in which he admitted to smoking crack. Just a few days ago, he was spotted at a Buffalo Bills-Atlanta Falcons game in Toronto. He may have stolen someone's seat, but he was there nonetheless.

So welcome to the D.C. airwaves, Mayor Ford—just don't move here and jump into our mayoral race like everyone else.
