In case you were wondering whether it’ll be worth your time to tune into Rob Ford’s NFL segment with the JunkiesÂ on 106.7 Thursday, here’s a preview of the sort of thing that happens when you put the embattled Toronto mayor in front of a microphone.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, no stranger to controversy north of the border, stepped into one of the more contentious issues in the United States Wednesday, declaring that the NFLâ€™s Washington Redskins should not change their name.
â€śTo me, thatâ€™s ridiculous,â€ť he told reporters on Wednesday. â€śWhat are we going to call the Cleveland Indians? The Cleveland Aboriginals? Where do we start? The Skins are the Skins and I stick with the Washington Redskins.â€ť
Ford, you may recall, has a history with the Redskins, having attended a RedskinsÂ youth football camp as a teenager. According to the National Post, heÂ â€ścanâ€™t waitâ€ť for his radio appearance with the Junkies Thursday. That makes at least two of us.
