Long story Short:

l dropped by a convenient store yesterday down in the South bay and in line was this Gentleman in a motorized wheelchair. The guy had emphysema, oxygen tank, tubes going into the nostrils. He was purchasing 5 QP'S for the MM tonight. We got to talking outside the store and he said his name was Ronnie, had been playing some 25 years and wanted to win " real Bad" as he puts it. Said he wants a new set of lungs as his first  gift to himself, even if he has to get them in China.

The lengths people go to win is astounding, l applaud Ronnie. Hope your dream comes true Big Fella.!

 

**** Have a Great weekend People...

        Hey, maybe that *was* your old buddy Ronnie! Did you tell him you were noise-gate? LOL

        Yeah, lets hope he wins tonight before the supply of illegal organs in China dries up later this year. Thumbs Up

          "Same" Ronnie Jon? Doubt it Los Angelino.This guy was a " soft speaking" probably in his mid 60's person- the other Ronnie came across as a under 30, arrogant A#&*/@!.
          As for China " cracking down" on anything...right, they can't stop movie piracy how the heck are they going to stop determined people from harvesting organs?

              I hope Ronnie finds a replacement pair of lungs in the very near future.

                  Ronnie isn't the only player who wants to win the MM and every player thinks he/she has a good reason.  Good luck to them all.

                    I Agree!  While I hope Ronnie gets some luck his way in terms of getting lung treatment,  I do wish the best of luck to everyone on MM!

                        Right. There are many people who want to win, need to win, have personal hardship and tragedies, have plans to put the money to good use in their own way. Some are LP members.

                        In fact, if Ronnie does win, I'm sure he'll be hit up for money by some of those people in need just like many jackpot winners are. There's always someone who needs it more.

                            I hope Ronnie wins and gets a new set of lungs.

                            And I hope the other Ronnie, the AZ toilet-boy, wears something to protect his lungs when he's breaking up those logjams.
