Toronto’s mayor totally overreacted to a silly website mistake

Tuesday May 17th, 2016

Sometimes people who run websites make little harmless mistakes. But sometimes elected officials perceive these mistakes as slights against their city. 

On Tuesday morning, had a poll asking fans who they think will win the NBA Finals. There were four options, which makes sense because there are four teams left in the playoffs. But wait a second, where are the Raptors?

It’s pretty logical to think that the poll was simply a couple days old, from before the Raptors beat the Heat in Game 7. Maybe someone can tell that to Toronto mayor John Tory.

Tory decided to write a letter saying how not-mad he is about the whole thing, thereby revealing himself to be actually pretty mad.

The Raptors are going to get swept, anyway.
