Bombers fan misses out on grand prize after Argos touchdown called back

WINNIPEG -- A penalty flag cost the Toronto Argonauts a touchdown on Thursday night in Winnipeg.

Karen Kuldys of Winnipeg was the contestant for a Safeway/Sobeys $1 million touchdown promotion, needing two kick returns for touchdowns in the CFL game to win the grand prize.

Ryan Lankford ran back a 105-yard kick return for a touchdown on the first play of the game to get her halfway there.

Toronto's Martese Jackson then ran a 109-yard kick return for a touchdown in the second quarter that should have sealed the deal for Kuldys, but a flag for an illegal block in the back by Toronto's Llevi Noel negated the touchdown.

It didn't take long for a ".WhatAboutKaren" hashtag to begin trending on Twitter in Canada, with many fans saying the referees had made a bad call and that Kuldys should get the $1 million.

But Kuldys didn't leave empty-handed. She won a home theatre package worth $25,000 thanks to Lankford's touchdown 14 seconds into the game.
