Controversial Canadien Rob Ford has returned to the news this week in a bizarre interview in which he likens his recent trip to rehab to attending football camp as a child.
Speaking to the the Toronto Sun, the former major of the city described rehabilitation as "amazing":
"It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid," said the much maligned 44-year-old.
Ford did not go into any further detail regarding his football ability in the recent interview, but did explain in December 2013 about his camp experiences as a kid:
"These guts literally taught us how to play football...
"It was great discipline at a young age. I went back there three years in a row, so it was fantastic."
Unfortunately there are no details about which position Ford specialized in, but judging by his unique physique we are going to take a guess at offensive or defensive lineman.
Who knows, if life had followed a different path maybe Ford could have been getting into trouble in the NFL with the Redskins rather than in the political arena.
Despite being accused of taking crack cocaine, as well as being involved n several other controversial incidents, Ford is planning on running for election again at the nearest opportunity.
