Mayor Rob Ford has a lot riding on Monday night’s CFL game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Edmonton Eskimos.
What’s on the line? Civic pride and each mayor’s Facebook and Twitter account.
Ford – a big fan of the Boatmen – has made a friendly wager with Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel about the game.
Mandel tweeted the “friendly wager” this morning with this tweet:
Mayor Ford’s Twitter account was quick to accept the wager with a tweet back to Mandel:
The two mayors attended an Eskimos’ game together during Ford’s family vacation out west earlier this month.
It isn’t clear how long the mayor whose city loses tonight’s game will have to support the rival team but given Ford’s competitive streak when it comes to football, here’s betting if the Double Blue loses he won’t want to cheer for Edmonton online any longer than he has to.
