Fail

Well Toronto. The last 9 attempts at victory have been pretty much futile.

It’s been a miserable run, and I am beginning to get very very concerned.
Each time I’ve held my breath, hoping for success, only to be disappointed yet again.

How long can this go on? Perhaps a change in management is in order, because it just doesn’t seem fair.

I’m 0 for 9 in Tim Horton’s latest Roll Up The Rim campaign.

Bah!

0-9, wait til you are in league with me, I stopped counting in 2009...

Tim's hates me. I'll buy you a winner though.

I'm 0 for the last 3 years, honestly. My daughter bought herself a Hot Chocolate, first ever and won. She gave it to me, and I lost again.

The streak continues.

I've switched from Tim Horton's to McDonalds. No foolin'.

Of course, when I'm feeling rich, I'll go for Starbucks.

My mom, however, has won two free donuts in a row with Roll Up The Rim.

You're talking about a ruddy Coffee Cup contest? I first thought this was a real entry.

Thank you Devo.

For a minute there I thought I was being too Terrence Mallick'ish.

You're not going to get free shit from Tim Horton's with those types of comments CQ.

Roll up the rim is a great Canadian past time. I've heard more conversations in offices, bars and restaurants, far more than the Fails of the weather prognosticators lately.

@elvis:
That's Okay. When Colonel Sanders lived part-time at 1337 Melton back in the 1960s & 70s, keeping the Canadian territory of KFC for himself instead of selling out (as he did for worldwide KFC operations), with Tim Horton stopping regularly at the nearby QEW north-side plaza for the Leafs team bus... I never got anything*.
p.s. Dave Thomas of Wendy's fame was one of the Colonel's top franchisors. Decades later, Wendys bought Tims.
*Actually the Colonel (honourary, yet fought in Cuba at 16) set-up the Cdn Operations as a Charity. Observe the donation title over Mississauga's central Hospital.

May as well let Ron coach for rest of season so he can set the mark for worst coach ever in the N.H.L. for most loses by a coach. He only needs 16 more. And whats this about he never ever goes in and talks to his team in the dressing room after a game. Mr. Cherry should have fun with that knowledge.
