Toronto's embattled mayor, Rob Ford, has made his pick for Super Bowl 48. Unsurprisingly for Ford, his pick is Mile High.

Ford told a Washington, DC area radio show last week that he was rooting for Denver to win the big game this Sunday.  According to the Toronto Sun, he also expressed support for Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, "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."

And if anyone knows about class acts, it's Rob Ford. Last year the mayor was haunted by one salacious story after another having to do with his smoking crack cocaine, being drunk in public, and harassing female aides. Earlier this month, a video surfaced showing an intoxicated Ford babbling in a Jamaican accent.

Ford showcased his fandom by donning a bright orange Broncos jersey at a Toronto press conference Monday. No foreign accents were used.
