CFL Offers Karen Kuldys Tickets, Groceries After She Loses $1 Million Prize

When the Toronto Argonauts' Martese Jackson ran back a kickoff 109-yards against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday, Karen Kuldys thought she was about to become a millionaire.

"I'll be telling the story for the rest of my living days". If two kickoffs are returned for touchdowns in the same game the contestant wins a million dollars. Kuldys had the chance to win the grand prize in the "Safeway/Sobeys $US1,000,000 Touchdown To Win" contest.

Kuldys was appreciative of Canada's support, thanking them for rallying behind her.

Well, it's not a million dollars, but Karen Kuldys is going to be a VIP at the 2017 Grey Cup in Ottawa, her family will get a year's worth of free groceries and free season tickets to Winnipeg Blue Bombers games for this season and next. "It's awesome, I'm very happy with that, but as everybody says it's not a million dollars". Even TSN analysts devoted much of the halftime show to lamenting what they described as a bad call on the field.

"I just found that out from a lady here at CBC, that's worth $50,000".

Randy Ambrosie, the CFL's new commissioner, personally reached out to Kuldys with the league's offer.

"We are all supporters, and no matter what team we support, we would all like to see a supporter of the CFL, winning a million dollars, said the commissioner of the CFL". "So we all feel for Karen and what she must have gone through last night, and what she must still be feeling today". "I need to get in touch with the CFL". Back in 2007, she hit the lottery and won $675,000.

"We were thrilled that Karen won a $25,000 home theatre package after one kickoff was returned for a touchdown", said Lyne Castonguay, Executive Vice President, Sobeys Inc.

It wasn't quite $1 million or bust, as Kuldys did receive a $25,000 home theater deal for the one kickoff that was brought back, as Safeway/Sobeys also kicked in free groceries for a year after hearing about the dilemma.

Many fans blamed the referee for making a bad call, but Ambrosie defended his officials.

"It was a call very hard to our official yesterday [Friday] evening that could have gone in the other direction", said Ambrosie.
