Saturday Morning in Nathan Phillips Square found The Calgary Grey Cup Committee continuing their tradition of holding a Pancake Breakfast with everyone invited.
Calgary Music played on stage as people waited in fast moving lines for the free breakfast.
Alberta Premier Alison Redford was on hand to flip some pancakes and thanking the City of Toronto and its fans for hosting the 100th Grey Cup Festival.
Their Worships Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Toronto Mayor Rob Ford came on stage, traded Argos and Stamps team jerseys as part of the “MayorBet”.
Mayor Nenshi gave Rob Ford a traditional Calgary white hat as a token of friendship. Rob Ford gave Nenshi a signed hand-sized blue and white football.
Mayor Ford then dropped the Stampeders jersey onto the stage and stomped on it. The Calgary Mayor kept his cool and didn’t return the favour.
The Losing City’s Mayor must wear the Winning Team’s jersey to the next City Council Meeting. In addition, the Losing Mayor must donate their weight in food to the other city’s main foodbank. Both mayors challenged the public to join in their foodbank themed bet.
Afterwards, Mayors Ford and Nenshi spent some time flipping Pancakes.
Suprisingly, Rob Ford is really good at that.
