Three lives just changed overnight.
It is being reported that exactly three tickets hit the record-setting $640 million Mega Millions jackpot last night, ending the nationwide lotto hysteria.
Tickets from Illinois, Kansas and Maryland had the lucky numbers 02-04-23-38-46, Mega Ball 23. Each ticket will payout $213 million before taxes. After taxes, each ticket is worth around $85 million. That’s a truckload of dough. Let’s hope TLC scrambles their cameras for the next episode of ‘The Lottery Changed My Life‘.
From AP story: Had you won the whole pot, and invested the $300 million conservatively, Steve Fazzari, an economics professor at Washington University in St. Louis, said you could have expected to collect a nice “salary” of about $7 million “after taxes every year for the rest of your life and the rest of the life of your heirs.”
Too bad Alabama had to sit and watch as 47 other states raked in the loot on lotto sales.

There isn’t much Nick Saban hasn’t done in his incredible career but the little man with a plan recently made the back row for the latest SEC Coaches picture. This is a rare occurrence for a man of his stature. Somewhere in Oregon, little Zach Roloff, from the show Little People Big World, is giving a fist-pump.
Florida Gators coach Will Muschamp sported a black leather jacket that completely overshadows Auburn coach Gene Chizik’s windbreaker. Not that these guys are known for their sense of style but come on men. It is 2012 and you are multi-millionaires with access to finer fabrics. Note: Chizik and Muschamp combined to make $6.7 Million last season. Not to say leather is cheap but it isn’t the best look for a coach with a bad haircut.
The picture resembles a casting call for TLC’s show What Not To Wear.
There is only one question. Where are the wives at when you are getting dressed in the morning?
Tennessee coach Derrick Dooley looks like he is literally sitting on the hot seat. There are sure to be new faces in next year’s picture and Dooley is the most likely coach to be replaced.
Editor’s Note: There is no word yet if a melee ensued after the taking of this picture.
