    Wow.  Talk about putting a target on your back.  That Chuckle-head lawyer needs to be disbarred.  Go on national TV and expose your identities to every greedy low-life in the northern hemisphere?  I know they are excited and overwhelmed, but c'mon...laying low and proceeding cautiously is Lottery Winning 101.  Has there not been enough cautionary tales in the past 20 years to give you a clue? 

    Well, good luck to them.  They are going to need it.

            Why do people like this win?  Going back to work, and lives won't change. Why play at all?  Just keep working and don't play leave the jackpot for those who want their lives to change or who want to enjoy the money.

                    I just watched the video.

                    Savanahh Guthrie ( who is also an attorney in real life)  asks them why they came to the Today show instead of claiming their ticket?

                    And she makes it clear that the winners found the Today show, not the other way  around

                      CNN had another lawyer come on for a 2nd opinion and he just said what I was already thinking. I'm not over reacting here folks. This lawyer a  Half-wit 

                      ignoramus.

                       

                      (Note CNN  news reporter is wrong about the state law of TN. Reporters repeating the same BS over and over without checking the facts. )

                       

                      Also, see if you can notice something odd about who is in photo:

                      "All smiles: The Robinson, right and center, appeared on the Today show along with their daughter Tiffany, left, their lawyer Joe Townsend, second right, and Mr. Townsend's daughter Eileen, second left "

                       

                      Noticed it yet?

                      Why in the hell is the Lawyer's freaking daughter Eileen with them during their trip to New York city to go on the news?

                      She was also at their state lottery press conference.

                       

                      And here is the difference between me and them....  I would have hired that 2nd attorney 

                       

                      I mean I didn't even know those people TOOK their ticket with them and they hadn't even cashed it yet?!  On what planet is this a good idea.  I hope to God that they are all safe and their famly is safe because this is the best example I have ever seen of how not to claim a lottery prize.

                        Congratulations to them.  That's the problem with winning these big jackpots.

                        The cameras, press and media won't leave you alone.  How annoying!!!

                          Why on earth is the winner's home town " public record?" Out here in CA- the name of the winner,name of the city & store that sold the ticket is for the public record. Unless I am reading this wrong- knowing where the winner resides is simply asking for it..

                          People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

                              I know, and the the Universe just kinda happened out of nothing for no reason too, lol.

                              No such think as luck, because fortunately, or unfortunately (life doesn't seem so fair), nothing happens without a reason....so, not luck, karma. :)
