Good to see a couple guys winning together who ain't trying to cheat the other guy or sue the other guy.

That's the way most people used to be.

When a man's word was his bond.

And a good reputation meant something.

Ain't like that much anymore.

      Only sad part about this story are the taxes paid. They will probably get 3 mill each.

              Way to go public, so everyone can see you, good luck with all the solicitors

              New York requires you to go public.  Would you have preferred they surrendered their winnings like what happened in your state?

                Good story. Clearing $3 mil and change each isn't mega-rich, but it's just fine, especially for the 74-year-old. And the other guy will do okay too.

                  Nice win! It took a lot of patience to wait that long to finally hit a nice prize but now they are set with some nice retirement money.  Big congrats to both of you!-weshar75

                    I agree Arrowhead, plus the 74-yr old man said "we're going to Miami"! I love that. That's where I'd go to. Maybe even Orlando (Disney)!
