I had one heck of a merry xmas eve.  I got up at 10pm to find that I has won the first quarter of the Steelers-Panthers game on my work football pool, which paid out $25.  At around 11, I was in the McDonald's drive-thru before I started my shift at work, listening to the game on the radio to find out I had won the third quarter on the pool as well (with a different square at that) and another $25.  Anyway, while on my lunch at work, I got winners of $40 and $400 on instant tickets.  And to top it off, since I started my shift at midnight, I got out at 8:30am, before all the hustle and bustle.  One heck of a merry xmas eve for me.

I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

          FANTASTIC DoctorEw!!! congrats!

          brothadan, I think Doc is referring to a pool where you bet on what the score of a game will be after the 1st, 2nd, quarter, etc.

            As for how much I spent, it was nowhere near what I won.  As for the football pool, here's how it works.

            There is a grid with 100 squares, 10 rows of 10 squares. Everyone puts in a set amount ($2 in the case of my work's pool.)   Someone draws the numbers from 0-9 for both teams.  If the numbers for each team match the last (ones) digit for the score at the end of each quarter, you take the money.  For example, I had Steelers 3- Panthers 0, Steelers 8- Panthers 3, and Steelers 7- Panthers 0.   For the first quarter, and the score was 3-0 in favor of the Steelers, so I won it.  For the third quarter, the score was 27-0 in favor of the Steelers, so I got that one as well.  Payouts vary depending on the pool.  Some do 1/8 of the pot for the first quarter, 1/4 for halftime, 1/8 for the third quarter, and 1/2 for the final score (after any overtime).  Others just give out 1/4 of the pot for each quarter.

            Does that make sense?

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                        Congratulations on the big wins. Now if I could just be so lucky...there I go daydreaming again. Spread some of that wealth down south will you, or at least some of the luck, as I seem to have lost mine. You've sent the snow and cold, now send the rest. My kids had a decent Christmas, so I am happy about that. My six year old says "Well I guess I wasn't as bad as I thought I was. Santa Clause brought me some toys after all." Poor kid, I guess we scared him so much that he was expecting coal or switches. He said how Santa was bad for leaving the fireplace doors open.

                          Glad you had a good Christmas, CarHauler! I did, too. Despite my liberal political views, I do believe in God and Christ. It's my favorite time of year - everything is so joyful. I got some snow yesterday, but not as much as predicted before. About 4-5 inches.

                          What a nice Christmas treat it was for the poster to have that $400 win!
