Toronto Mayor Wears Tie With Redskins Logo While Apologizing for Smoking Crack

Maybe not the fan pride the team had in mind.

By: Benjamin Freed

Dan Snyder has recently been asking fans of his football team to show their pride in the face of a movement urging the club to change its name. He might not have meant that to include the sartorial choices of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who today gave a public apology for smoking crack cocaine during  one of his "drunken stupors," while wearing a necktie prominently featuring Washington's logo.

As captured by Dave Kaufman, a radio host in Montreal, Ford approached a horde of cameras wearing a tie emblazoned with what appears to be the logos of all 32 NFL teams. Perhaps Ford is more a fan of the league at large than any specific team, but the Washington logo is right up top. Maybe not the fan pride Snyder was looking for.

Yup. There's a Redskins logo on Rob Ford's necktie. @bruce_arthur @EdgeofSports pic.twitter.com/E0uoy3F7W9

For what it's worth, former DC Mayor Marion Barry is a dedicated fan of the squad he likes to call the "Washington home team," though he disagrees with Snyder on the name.
