East Coast rocker Matt Mays was simply trying to enjoy Sunday afternoon's NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and the Atlanta Falcons when someone was sitting in his seat: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

Mays was apparently trying to locate his seat at Toronto's Rogers Centre for the tilt when he realized the controversial politician was in the seat Mays was assigned. Mays then tweeted about what was transpiring:


Matt Mays
I have to kick him out right? It's awkward. I'm by myself.

Matt Mays
Rob Ford is sitting in my seat at the Bills game. He stole my seat. I don't know what to do.

Matt Mays
I'm by myself. I gotta kick him out right? I mean I would kick anyone else out... Am I wrong?

Matt Mays
The mayor stole my f@#%ing seat man!!

Other outlets such as Deadspin as well as journalists retweeted Mays' dilemma with TSN journalist Dave Hodge chiming in:


Dave Hodge - TSN
Dear : If you can get Rob Ford to give up his seat, Toronto City Council would like to speak with you.

Various photos of Ford sitting at the game soon emerged via Twitter, including one of him eating what appeared to be a chicken wing as well as others.

Meanwhile, National Post sports columnist Bruce Arthur reminded others via Twitter that Mays had once recorded the song "Cocaine Cowgirl" which appeared on his 2005 album "Matt Mays and El Torpedo."

Less than an hour later, Mays was able to get his seat back but didn't elaborate much.

Mays released his last studio album "Coyote" in 2012.
