View Full Version : Being a Royals fan pays off handsomely

If you're a big baseball fan, why wouldn't you pick your lottery numbers based on your all-time favorite players? It's better than using your zip code or the back-end of your Social Security number.

A store in Dearborn, Mo., just 35 miles north of Kansas City, sold one of the winning tickets to Wednesday's $587.5 million Powerball jackpot. The numbers -- 5, 23, 16, 22, 29 and 6 -- match Royals greats George Brett, Mark Gubicza, Bo Jackson, Dennis Leonard, Dan Quisenberry and Willie Wilson. All are Royals Hall of Famers except for Jackson.

We're not 100 percent positive, but guessing the winner was probably a Royals fan. And so is the lottery machine.


This is hilarious!

If I thought to do that myself. Where's Saberhagen though? ;)
