The Mayor of Toronto went on the Washington D.C. radio show Sports Junkies again Thursday morning to give his weekly NFL picks, and he channeled his inner Skip Bayless with a hot sports take on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
Without a trace of irony, Ford predicted that Kaepernick would "get lit up" and that "they might give him a rockin’ pretty good" if he tried to run the ball against the Seattle Seahawks. He also said that the 49ers quarterback was "a little bit arrogant," but admitted that "he might deserve to be arrogant."
America's favorite Canadian mayor also gave his take on who he'd like to see win it all. Per the Toronto Sun:
I really want Peyton to win – he’s a class act and I hope he gets it right. We’ll see what happens if he loses, it’s not going to be good.
That sounds suspiciously like a threat, like maybe Ford has the Toronto City Worker's pension plan riding on Peyton being able to cover the five-point spread.
Ford also picked the Seahawks to beat the 49ers at home, so if you're keeping score, Rob Ford's Super Bowl pick is Denver vs. Seattle -- two cities in the states that have decriminalized recreational marijuana.
