Contest winner misses Super Bowl trip due to 1981 pot conviction2/4/2013
Myles Wilkinson beat out more than 4 million other entrants to win a Fantasy Football contest with a top prize of an all-expenses paid trip to Super Bowl XLVII. But his trip to New Orleans came up well short: U.S. customs officials stopped him in Toronto and wouldn't let him enter the country because of a minor drug bust 31 years ago. "I had two grams of cannabis," said Wilkinson, who was 19 at the time. "I paid a $50 fine. I can't believe this is happening." Contest sponsor Bud Light Canada invited him to attend its party in Vancouver, but to Wilkinson even that consolation is probably hard to swallow. [Source]
