Which record do you think will get broken first? Or not broken at all?

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.

      Which stolen base record did Maury Wills have?

      I believe you mean Rickey Henderson and unless they change the way the game is played, Rickey's record will stand..

        Personally, I don't think anyone will ever break the record that was set at this year's Kentucky State Fair amid a cloud of controversy.

        It was in the Ladies Division Finals of "The Loudest Fart in Kentucky" Contest and it caused quite a stink stir.

        It seems one of the lady contestants, unfamiliar with the protocols, and unsure of where the microphone was for her performance, stopped right in front of the judges table, grabbed the Governor's microphone, bent over and let 'er rip. Well, the Governor's wife screamed and fell over backwards in her chair off the reviewing stand right into the slop in the hog pit. Then, for some reason, she got mad at the Governor for bringing her there and started flinging pig poop and screaming at him, calling him a stupid son of a b-word. I thought that was uncalled for but the crowd went wild.

        Anyway, long story short, the lady contestant pinned the decibel meter even though she used the wrong microphone and the experts in this field say the record will likely never be broken.

          Stack47,

          Ooops! Good eye!

          Side note, Rickey Henderson made more in one season than Mickey Mantle made his entire career.

              I picked the 656 MM JP

              I don't pay attention to baseball, are the other records close to being beaten ?

                  Probably the jackpot.  I can see a slightly bigger one in the future, but  never a billion $.  When it gets real high it gets too easy to win.
