        Same from me...good luck DoubleDown.  I hope you win.  I procrastinated too long.  As I wrote in another post, I finally gave in and tried to buy a couple of tickets, but I was too late. 

        Funny, right now I'm on dialup and I just realized I used it for 8 years before I switched to DSL.  I was on LP for several months using a 52K modem. It's really not too bad, but I need high-speed for work because I download hundreds of documents. I hope the new modem I'm getting will resolve the problem.  Anyway, I was able to get a dialup connection for a temporary fix, thank goodness.  Of course I just had to sign on to LP!!

        Anyway, what does this have to do with the lottery?  I have no idea.  Just trying to calm down.

        Hyper me earlier tonight

          It sold out fast.  I wonder will the raffle tickets in the few other states sell out fast too?

                  SC is doing this silly raffle also. What a great marketing ploy to raise even more money. The odds are still pretty ridiculous, aren't they?

                    The odds are silly, CPS10.

                    But I am playing GA, FL, and SC anyway..

                     ( SC tix are only $10 each ).

                     

                    Amen bro on the Gaytors. I am a GA DAWG !!!!

                    Heck, South Carolina had the gaytors beat . They were lucky to block the game winning FG against SC , otherwise Michigan would have their rematch....

                    Michigan was penalized for not playing a game since 11/18...

                        The Buckeyes definitely deserve the title. Just one game to go!

                        And Michigan did get railed on not being able to play a conference title game. Florida has been skating by all season...and should have been beat by SC. That was gift-wrapped for them.

                        Although I wouldn't want to have to play Michigan again, but they are more of a match than the GAYters. Florida stands NO chance against OSU.
