We know where Rob Ford’s allegiance will lie this Sunday night.
The embattled Toronto mayor showed up to his Monday news conference in Canada’s largest city wearing the orange and blue of the Denver Broncos, who will of course take on the Seattle Seahawks this weekend in Super Bowl XLVIII.
That Ford is a Broncos supporter is no surprise. He revealed on the Washington, D.C., radio show The Sports Junkies earlier this month that he’s a huge fan of Peyton Manning and hopes the Denver quarterback can take home a second championship this season.
“I really want him to win a Super Bowl, I’m pulling for Denver all the way,” Ford said. “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.”
Ford’s choice of attire for his presser is a bit puzzling, though. Do they even sell Orlando Franklin jerseys in stores?
