Toronto Mayor Rob Ford doesn't just walk into TV cameras and take pratfalls trying to play football. Yesterday, he took it a step further by celebrating a Canadian Olympic hockey win so joyously that he walked groin-first into a fire hydrant, the National Post reports. Ford was celebrating the men's 3-0 victory over Sweden with revelers outside a Toronto sports bar when he made contact with the hydrant, eliciting a round of nervous laughter (see the video here). Meanwhile, another Ford reaction is making the rounds: his two-fisted leap for joy when the Canadian women's team beat the US 3-2 in overtime last week (see it at this Post story).
