The 44-year-old mayor, who wore a Fred Jackson jersey, looked unusually stone-faced in the stands, though his presence "caused a ripple" of fans looking to get a glimpse of their city's troubled leader.
It was especially inconvenient for Canadian rocker Matt Mays, who told The National Post that he was stopped by an usher on the way to his seat.
“The poor usher guy was like, ‘dude, I don’t really know what to tell you right now -- Mayor Rob Ford is in your seat, bro,’” Mays said. “It was kind of entertaining.”
Mays tweeted from the scene:
Rob Ford is sitting in my seat at the Bills game. He stole my seat. I don't know what to do.— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
I'm by myself. I gotta kick him out right? I mean I would kick anyone else out... Am I wrong?— Matt Mays (@MattMays) December 1, 2013
