    TORONTO- Infamous former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford sold the NFL necktie he wore when he admitted to smoking crack cocaine for $12,997 on eBay. The tie, which Ford wore during the Nov. 5, 2013, press conference where he admitted to smoking crack cocaine, garnered 111 bids during the Feb. 25-March 4 auction, which ended with a high bid of $12,997 -- or $16,100 Canadian.

    Ford, who is now a Toronto city councilor, is selling off numerous pieces of "memorabilia" on eBay, including the NFL logos tie, a pair of sweatpants he wore "on a shopping trip to Walmart," a "Ford Nation" sweatshirt, a coat he wore as a football coach and numerous signed jerseys and signed pictures.

    The auctions state "you are bidding on an original piece of memorabilia from former Toronto Mayor, and current Toronto Councilor Rob Ford" and each piece comes with a "signed, original, Certificate of Authenticity from Councilor Rob Ford himself."

    Ford, who was diagnosed with stomach cancer in September, said 10 percent of the money from the auctions will go to Toronto's Mount Sinai Hospital.

    ewww... gross. What a waste of money. I really can't tell what's more hideous, that tie, the face, or the legacy of ruin and humiliation he brought to Toronto and Canada as a whole?


    Stomach cancer us supposed to be a terrible way to go.

    The whole package is pretty sickening, though I believe his devil-may-care swagger was the most likely culprit to raise vomit juice in most of the genral public's stomachs.

    A good many of us have also been guilty of thinking we were yards ahead of the pack, at one point in life, but it is a frame of mind usually outgrown by most by age 6 or 7--after kindergarten interaction with others leads us to quickly figure out that we very much not the only truly worthy mother's son (or daughter) on the block; Rob never seemed to have learned that lesson.

    Sad that stomach cancer had to be the bully to finally come knock that Fortunate Son look off Rob's little fat face once and for all.
