Think about this: there is nearly $1 billion up for grabs this weekend in the country's two biggest lottery games.
There were no winners in last night's Powerball drawing, which means Saturday night's jackpot is now worth $550 million. But if you need to win millions before then, Friday night's Mega Millions jackpot is now $418 million. It's the first time that both major lottery games are worth more than $400 million.
I forgot to buy a ticket for last night's drawing. I had a ticket for Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing, which I obviously did not win. I will buy a quick pick for Friday's Powerball. I mean, I have the same fantasies as everybody else. I would LOVE to suddenly never have to worry about my bills ever again.
And yeah, I think I could do a good job of managing my Lotto winnings. After all, how many private jets does one guy need anyway. Right?
