I saw a lottery show where these two guys won 59 million and the first question the reporters ask them as "Will you quit bowling?"

Their hobby was bowling.

    I wouldn't quit (if I bowled) but I'd buy the bowling alley.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      I would have more time for my hobbies! and better equipment/supplies.

      Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

        I don't bowl, but if I didn't, I wouldn't stop just because I won a jackpot.

          Actually I looked up Home Bowling Allies after I posted this. I do believe that asking those guys if they would quit bowling after they won has to rank with the weirdest questions asked to a lottery winner ever.

          I wonder if they will ask me and my wife things like "Will you quit painting?" "Will you stop riding horses?" "Will you sell your animals or livestock?" (we've exotic animals/livestock)  for us that would be like them asking "Will you give your kids up for adoption?" Ask me "will you stop playing guitar?' "Will you stop writing music".....

           

          What things do you all love to do that would be weird for reporters to ask you if you would quit when you win the lottery of your dreams?

          Start listing them off. It could be funny

              Spare, me.  LOL  Why would you give up a hobby just because you won a jackpot? 

              I would continue to bowl, buy my own shiny new ball and, of course, my own bowling shoes.  I mean, renting shoes is like borrowing a hankerchief.

              Bowling is right up my alley, so get your mind out of the gutter.

                I know I about shot pop out my nose when they said that on the Lottery Riches show.  The reporters ask too fanatic bowlers if they would quit bowling...  heck when I win the lottery I will take up bowling and get myself a home bowling ally just because of that stupid question those reporters asked lol

                    I wrote a real cute reply to this, but I had to strike through it.

                    I just could not pin down what I was trying to say.

                    Can anyone spare an original thought on this ?

                    I guess I got in the wrong lane.

                      If I won a really big jackpot...

                      I'd hire someone to bowl for me!
