Toronto mayor Rob Ford can’t seem to stay out of the news. Sunday was no exception.

While attending the Buffalo Bills-Atlanta Falcons game in Toronto, Ford, wearing a Fred Jackson jersey, allegedly stole musician Matt Mays’ seat.

A Canadian musician, Mays earned fame in 2005 with his hit “Cocaine Cowgirl.”

Per Steve Ladurantaye of the Globe and Mail, Ford left the seat in question at 5:27 p.m. ET after a crush of attention from media and fans. Ladurantaye later reported that Mays had reclaimed the seat from the embattled Toronto mayor, a fact Mays confirmed later. Guess all’s well that ends well, eh?

So you walk into the park ticket in hand right?  You look at the row and seat number.  Find your seat.  SO how in the F'n hell is Ford in the wrong seat?  Was he one seat over?  Wrong row?  That could happen, in a case like that it takes a second to sort out.  NO, from what I understand this POS takes a vacant seat to sit with a friend, good spot, likes it, whatever and AGAIN inconveniences others and makes a spectacle of himself.  A total fool

If he had taken my seat, bet your @ss I would have gotten security to remove his @ss from my seat.

Doubt this. No way this lard azz p.o.s. can take ONE seat only.  Where is a good stroke when you need one.

I'd rather have Rob Ford in that seat than that whiny no name musician. Rob Ford is a made man.

Ford adamantly denied taking Mays' seat. In fact Ford denied being at the game.  But when shown the films of him being at the game and in Mays' seat, Ford said he was on a bender and his memory was altered by ingesting 5 pounds of chicken wings.

It's too bad Ford could not control himself, he was probably the only politician in North America with the guts to tell 30 year old teenagers to stop riding bikes and get a job.

"Wow, I'm really hungry, hey is anyone sitting here.. man I am hungry, are you hungry?  Hey if I give you five bucks can I have that chicken? Thanks, dude...hey look there is a football game going on out there.  Wow, this is a really good seat, but I still got the munchies, well see you later, tell the guy that was sitting here before that I love his song about cowgirls and cocaine."

If you're going to use 'eh', use it in the right context.

@45yearCowboyFan The guy smokes crack (admittedly, not allegedly), and yet you still work through the thought process.  Who's the fool, fool?

@45yearCowboyFan We don't know for a fact. The "musician" could be making this whole thing up to get free press. 

No one cares anymore.

@MikeHarrison Wow.  You're so tough that you wouldn't even address him directly!  Bypassing direct contact and getting security to say something?  You make Clint Eastwood seem like Selena Gomez!

@OswaldoLe'mon

What the hell? Many people ride bikes to commute to jobs, both white collar and blue collar. Others use them to run minor errands. (Please don't start with the "you can't move furniture on a bike" nonsense. How often do people need to move furniture anyway?) So all the people driving to the mall, or drag racing, or texting while driving are all upstanding, responsible citizens? Not according to the tens of thousands of Americans killed every year by drunk, texting, speeding and aggressive drivers.

@OswaldoLe'mon You are as big an idiot as Ford if you think that Toronto bike riders are just people with no jobs............ How dumb can you be?? Riding a bike is a sign of unemployment?? Dumbest statement I've heard in a while....

@Mkmck @jworsr @Cranky24/7 @Rickapolis Yep, it was a Republican congressman who was busted for using cocaine ~ he's been asked to resign, and he should!

He wasn't using cocaine in MY glass house ~ I'm no more a Republican than I am a Democrat.  As an Independent living in a glass house and looking out, I see far more moral/ethical violations by Democrats than Republicans ~ but if I could, I'd bring down a pox on BOTH their houses.....
