  Man throws away winning $100,000 lottery ticket, realizes mistake just in time A South Carolina man is counting his lucky stars after almost making a very expensive mistake when he threw away his winning $100,000 lottery ticket.The incident happened when the unnamed man purchased a Palmetto Cash 5 ticket from a BP gas station in Newberry, South Carolina, and, when checking the numbers of the lottery results, saw that he had lost and threw his ticket in the trash.

After just one week of action, ticket sales make it clear that the American public is much more excited about the XFL than it was for the now defunct AAF.

Ticket prices jumped significantly for XFL Week 2, and now a new report from TickPick, a no-fee secondary ticket marketplace, shines an even brighter light on how much interest there is for the XFL.

So, how much more interest is there in XFL games than the AAF from last year? Per the report, “ticket purchase orders for Weeks 1 and 2 of the XFL are a massive 1,427% higher than the first two weeks of last year’s AAF,” with the Dallas Renegades and D.C. Defenders the early favorites among fans.

Mother, daughter from Alliston, Ont. win lottery prize of $231K

  Mother, daughter from Alliston, Ont. win lottery prize of $231K The winning Lotto 6/49 ticket was purchased at Shell on Yonge Street in East Gwillimbury. A mother-daughter duo from Alliston, Ont., have hit the jackpot and won more than $231,000 in the Lotto 6/49 draw on Feb. 1.Pamela Horan and Diane Mason won the second prize worth $231,305.10 by matching five of six numbers, plus the bonus number."It's amazing how this came about because we decided on a whim to stop and buy a ticket on our way home one day," Mason said in a statement.

That’s insane, folks.

The AAF actually got off to a good start before the money dried up and the league filed for bankruptcy midway through its one and only season.

So, the fact that the XFL, which has significantly more reliable financial backing than the AAF, is already garnering this much interest when it comes to the bottom line can only bode well for the rebooted Vince McMahon project.
