(RNN) – Embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is playing the most incredible game of "hide and seek" ever.
At least that's what The Toronto Star believes after several claims that Ford has been spotted in cities that don't house rehabilitation clinics. The embattled mayor is taking a hiatus from his mayoral re-election campaign after a second allegation of him smoking crack cocaine on video was reported by The Toronto Globe and Mail last week. He is supposed to be in rehab for substance abuse.
Ford was reported to have been in Chicago, but the Star said he was denied entry to the United States. The mayor, however, claims he is in treatment, and told a Star columnist that rehab was "great" and it reminded him of "the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid."
Most people battling addiction wouldn't liken rehab to a poorly named football team's kids football camp, but OK, Rob Ford. We'll let you have that one.
A little something from YouTube: WWE gives terminally ill kid the match of a lifetime
Warning: This will make you cry.
In 2012, then 5-year-old Connor Michalek got his wish to meet his favorite professional wrestler, WWE superstar Daniel Bryan, and put him in his own submission hold. Yes, it's as cute as it sounds.
Little Connor is a special little boy who at the age of 3 was diagnosed with brain and spine cancer. His wrestling name was also "Stone Crusher." Yes, he's as precious as he sounds.
Daniel and Connor kept in touch, and in early April, Connor got a real special treat – tickets to Wrestlemania XXX and the chance to knock out Triple H before a live airing of Monday Night Raw. Yes, it's as awesome as it sounds.
Sadly, little Connor passed away on April 25. In his eternal memory, the WWE released a tribute video to "The Stone Crusher." You will need Kleenex.
Video Games: New ‘Call of Duty' trailer features Kevin Spacey as villain
The trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was released last week, and although the game won't be out until Nov. 4, gamers are salivating at the potential boost to the franchise.
The last game, Call of Duty: Ghosts, was a disappointment to many. The latest COD hopes to provide new specs that gamers will enjoy – especially since the game is tailored more to owners of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
An added bonus – the villain of this hopefully visually gorgeous video game is actor Kevin Spacey. It's enough to make me want to play.
Don Veca, the audio director at COD's developer Sledgehammer Games, told The eScapist that more memory and new technology will please newcomers and fans of the franchise.
"We've had two and a half years to create brand-new tech to control and support this game," Veca said. "It's something like 10 times the memory since this is next-gen. With all this extra memory and new mixing technology, we don't have to compress everything. We can make things longer and let them breathe."

Neighbors– A married couple with a new baby has a bit of trouble with their new neighbors – a house full of hard-partying college fraternity boys – who are determined to go to war after the police are called. It looks pretty funny, with Rotten Tomatoes even giving it an 87 percent on its "Tomatometer." The movie stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin'!).
