Free Team Canada Signature Shirt

Received yesterday. It looks better than the advertised photo. Also included in package was insert with coupon thanking me. Also lists the autographs of the Gold medal team that make up the hockey player figure on front of shirt. Now I wish I had eaten more cereal. I guess I have until Feb 28th to find more boxes with the offer and hope the offer hasn't expired and my size and style will be available. This is what I like. Something to eat, something free and something hockey. How can it get any better. (Leafs could win instead of 7-0 loss to the Rangers last night.)
Toto, I've a feeling I'm not in Utopia any more
