Rob Ford joins “The Sports Junkies”


On Wednesday morning, Washington, D.C., radio station WJFK 106.7 The Fan announced Toronto Mayor Rob will make a weekly appearance on a show called “The Sports Junkies.”

Ford has admitted to smoking crack and excessive drinking but has repeatedly said he doesn’t have a crack-smoking or excessive-drinking problem.

The mayor, who is a fan of the NFL and was apparently not afraid to steal a Canadian rocker’s seat at a Buffalo Bills game, will “talk sports and give his NFL picks” Thursday mornings at 8:40 Eastern, according to Chris Lingebach for CBS DC.

Hosts of the show have been sharing the news, and having a little fun with it, on Twitter.
