Fords Want NFL in Toronto
There's an article in the Toronto Star about Toronto mayor Rob Ford and his councillor brother hoping for an NFL team for Toronto. The article mentions Ted Rogers wanting an NFL franchise and unfortunately dying before it happened. The article also mentions Paul Godfrey who has also long desired an NFL franchise for Toronto. Which got me thinking, what are the odds that Godfrey dies before Toronto is awarded an NFL franchise? Sadly his wikipedia entry doesn't give his age, although apparently he was elected an alderman in 1964 so is obviously pretty crotchety.
