Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi donned a Toronto Argonauts jersey on Monday to live up to a Grey Cup bet he made with his Toronto counterpart John Tory.

The Calgary Stampeders lost 27-24 to Toronto in last Sunday's CFL championship game in Ottawa.

The loss was a bitter pill for Nenshi, who had to pull on the Argos gear before a council meeting and recite a poem praising the winning team.

The poem ended with this humbling line for one of Calgary's biggest Stampeders fan — "Now we have business to do and I must end this tale of woe, but I have to wrap it up by saying, ‘go Toronto Argos, go, go, go.' "

Nenshi is also making a contribution to Toronto’s food bank as part of his deal with Tory.

A rally for the 105th Grey Cup champions is set for today in front of Toronto City Hall.
