Rob Ford: 'Rehab is amazing. It reminds me of football camp.'

Rob Ford has been located, but he’s not saying where he is, other than in rehab. Which he loves, by the way.

“Rehab is amazing,” Ford tells the Toronto Sun. “It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid.”

Ford, the hot mess of a mayor from Toronto, took a leave of absence last week to get help. He then flew to Chicago, but turned back before officially gaining entry into the United States.

He is keeping quiet on where he is, and won’t even say what country he’s in — or why he turned back from Chicago.

Right now, Ford’s in a working rehab, still making calls to constituents while getting help at the same time.

There’s one big mess in the mayor’s office thanks to Ford, which he’s aware of. And oddly, the mayor who was launched into the spotlight thanks to a crack video ranks that behind another vice.

“I think alcohol is the worst drug of all. It makes you do things that you would never do or say things that you wouldn’t,” he said.

Ford said the tipping point for him was when he woke up April 29, the morning after he was taped going on a drunken rant at Sullie Gorman’s pub.

He told his brother, “That’s it.”
