Around noon on Friday, Ford headed to Toronto's Real Sports Bar and Grill after the men began their semifinal game, which Canada won 1-0.

When asked about being at the bar during the work day, Ford replied, "I'm asking the taxpayers to give me two hours off so I can support Canada ... And I think everyone should get two hours off."

He added, "[It's] not going to hurt anyone."

On Saturday, Ford tried out his DJing skills at a South by Southwest fundraiser for some local artists.

Then after celebrating Canada's 3-0 gold medal hockey victory over Sweden Sunday, photographer Darren Calabrese captured these photos of Ford celebrating groin-first right into a fire hydrant.

That's gotta hurt.
