A Plane Crash And The Curse Of The Sour Cream Glaze

tim.jpg

Tim Horton, legendary gritty defenceman, hitter of opponents, and winner of four Stanley Cups, died in single vehicle crash on Toronto’s QEW in 1974 with Martini olives in his blood. This was sometime after he founded the spectacular dount chain bearing his name. Today, Ron Joyce, the co-founder of the donut empire, was involved in a plane crash. A case of not-so instant karma? Maybe: Tim Horton’s brings in $400million in annual revenue…and Joyce bought out Horton’s widow for $1million shortly after his death.
