So Did You Get Your Powerball Tickets Yet?
Tonight will be the biggest jack-pot in lotto history, an estimated $550 million dollars. If you are lucky enough to win it, that’s $360 million bucks in one shot! With that kind of score you could buy a huge house, fast cars, a private jet, a killer yacht, go on a world tour and hire Van Halen to play your birthday party. That sounds like a lot of fun, but not for me.
If I won the Powerball tonight the first thing I would do is NOT tell people I won. How many times have you see one of those stories about a lotto winner being hustled out of cash. The next thing would be pay off all my debt and take care of my family. Now, while all that fancy stuff sounds cool, it’s not me. I have never been one of those guys.
What I would do is go on an international beer tour. I know it seem silly but I would hit the road and go to as many breweries as I could hit in a year. Then I would go to every St. Louis Blues game home and away for an entire season. I would buy a fast car, a Ferrari, I have always loved them. Then I would buy a nice piece of land, build a cool house and plant a black oak forest around my home.
The problem is that the odds of winning are 1 in 175 million, that means you are three times more likely to die from a falling coconut than you are to win the Powerball tonight. I got my tickets, so good luck tonight and look out for falling coconuts.
