It's almost as if smoking crack was the best thing to happen to Rob Ford's political career. The Toronto mayor was spotted at the Falcons-Bills game over the weekend, and on Wednesday it was announced that he'll have a weekly segment on Washington D.C.'s 106.7 to give his NFL picks.

And like everybody else on the planet, Ford has some thoughts on the Redskins name controversy.

There's more:

Ford will be relieved to know that Washington owner Dan Snyder has made it clear that under no circumstances will the team be called anything but the Redskins. "We'll never change the [team] name," he said back in May. "It's that simple. NEVER -- you can use caps."
