‘Determined’ Saints Fan Protests The Super Bowl…By Dying
I guess he really was a die-hard fan. This is "Crappy News" for Friday, February 8th, 2019.
Greenville, KY- A man won the lottery...without realizing it.
Sean Winn purchased a scratch-off ticket last week. He didn't think he'd won anything so he threw the ticket in the back of his truck.
The Tennessee Lottery has an online program that allows contestants to enter their non-winning tickets into a cash prize drawing.
However, the system rejected Winn's scratcher, so he double-checked his ticket and saw that he'd won $4 MILLION.
Winn says he's still processing his big--um, win--and hasn't decided how to spend the money. [Tennessee Lottery]
Hey...I know a radio host in Iowa that's getting married soon. Why not throw him a few bucks?
Rideau Lakes, Ontario, Canada- Police were called following a bingo brawl.
Officers responded to a call at a senior living facility on Tuesday afternoon. Witnesses say an 86-year-old and 79-year-old got into an argument because one of the women took someone else's regular seat.
The argument turned PHYSICAL, and other residents had to get involved. Luckily, police were able to break up the fight and nobody was hurt.
No charges were filed, and it's not clear if the Bingo game went on as planned. [CTV]
Old folks get really revved up about Bingo. I'm honestly surprised this doesn't happen more often.
New Orleans, LA- This football fan was VERY upset about his team's loss.
Many fans of the NFL were furious about the New Orleans Saints' controversial loss in the NFC Championship game. Saints fans in particular actually boycotted the Super Bowl. But one fan went a step further.
65-year-old Harry Jaume died around 1:00 p.m. Sunday, about five hours before kickoff. According to his obituary, Jaume was "determined not to watch Super Bowl LIII."
His family also described him as "charismatic with a great sense of humor and quick wit," so he probably would've enjoyed the tribute.
