In case you can’t read it, it says:
“I thought I would write to you about the questionable value represented by your poll on the most likely winner of the NBA Championship.
The poll offered a choice between Cleveland, Golden State, Oklahoma City and “other.” We have to assume that “other” is Toronto, proud home of the Raptors and 2.8-million residents, including many CBS Sports viewers.
We’re not the slightest bit offended. In fact, we’re accustomed to being underestimated. Just a few days ago LeBron James said he was looking forward to playing the Heat – a team that is now golfing. Dwayne Wade thought he could take practice shots during our national anthem. Well we showed him how we feel about that.
In Toronto, North America’s 4th largest city, it’s actually quite exciting for us to have our Raptors in the Conference Finals – a first for a Canadian team. Especially since basketball was actually invented by a Canadian. You’re welcome!
Please don’t hesitate to have your people call my office to get prime camera positions for the parade after the Toronto Raptors win the NBA Championship. We will mark their space as “other.””
He also signed it as the Mayor of “Other”
Canada’s team may have an uphill battle, but don’t count us out yet!
