I won $1000 shopping spree to Battlefield Mall a couple of years ago for test driving a Jeep.

Also when I was 10 I won 2 Amy Grant tickets through a raffle. But those were worthless.

I've won skill-based prizes like writing contests and scholarships.

As far as luck-based prizes...hmm. I won a stuffed killer whale many years back, and I don't know why. It just came in the mail. And when I was about ten, I won an alarm clock at a county fair bingo game.

OH! OH! At Elitch Gardens (Six Flags in Denver), I threw a dime on a plate and won one of those enormous stuff animals once.

That's about it.

Clarification: it wasn't a real killer whale that was stuffed. It was a small synthetic one.

It'd be really cool to win a real stuffed killer whale. I think I'd hang it from the ceiling in my dining room.

A former coworker of mine said that once he was representing his company at a trade show, and they had a "box full o' cash" that was a prize. Supposedly, if you visited their booth, you'd get a key, and if the key opened the box, you got the cash. They had a "big box o' keys" to choose from.

I was incensed, because he said that they wouldn't let you pick the key from the big box o' keys. They would hand you a key, and none of the keys fit the box. They had the real key hidden under their table, and saved it for one of their big clients.

He was just an intern at the time, and he said it was embarrassing, because some of the keys were ludicrous. The big box o' cash had your basic padlock on it, and he said that sometimes he had to hand the person a big skeleton key or a little suitcase key, and they'd get disgusted.

Imagine how disgusted they would be if they knew the real story. And this was a very large, world-known company, too.

Yep...

1. Won a shot at regional finals in the "Showtime's Funniest Person in America" back in '85. I did pretty well with the local clubs, came in second a few times to this little gal from Medicine Lodge, Kansas... Martina Shiff(?)... she went to Nashville and married some guy named McBride.

2. As part of a Microsoft promotion for technical trainers, I won about 10k worth of Dell Computer equipment in February of 2000, all with new MS OS installed, a PDA, signed licensed copies of Win2K Server, Advanced Server, and Workstation.

But the biggest lottery I ever won was meeting and marrying my wife.

This reminds me of a time when a friend of mine worked at Royals/Chiefs stadiums as a vendor. Somehow he got ahold of several boxes of all star ballots for baseball-- we guessed there were probably 5,000-10,000 ballots per box.

He took them home and used a drill to punch his votes and then proceeded over the next few weeks to fill the ballot boxes with his votes.

I guess he might have had some impact on the voting, but probably not the deciding factor. I would guess he did about 50-60k votes.

I've won several shotguns in Pheasants forever raffles. I've won a ton of expensive tools at construction open houses and seminars. I win shit at bars all the time.

I've probably won over 10k in money and prizes playing Golden Tee Golf too, but that's mostly skill based.

OUt of the blue I'll hear some radio say caller "x" will win, blah blah blah... and I alsways seem to be the guy. The last thing I won was tickets to a Chiefs game this past season (I have season tix, so it didn't matter).
I wish I would not win the small crap and win something big and cool... like a boat.

I've won a lot of stuff on the radio over the years...concert tickets, cash, misc. crap.

My wife won round trip airfare for two back in 2001 that she used for airfare to Vegas for my 40th b-day and she won a 3 day trip to Vegas (airfare, hotel Mandalay Bay, concert tickets to Heart) in August 2004.

Oh. That reminds me. I won about $40 in undergraduate school on some cheesy campus game show. They randomly picked me and a half-dozen other people out of the crowd, and we had a series of contests where the last-place person got eliminated each round. I don't remember most of the contests, but one of them was draining a baby bottle of fruit punch. It was that sort of thing.

I lost when my pile of blocks collapsed right at the end of the "build the highest pile of blocks" competition. It stank. If I could've beaten a couple more people, I would've gone into one of those booths with the big fan and the dollar bills all blowing around it.

Even so, $40 was a huge win for me at the time, because I was malnourished and was pretty much picking through the Dumpsters® for leftover cafeteria food.

Got 4 out of 5 + the powerball. Called QuickTrip to see how much I won, told him I got 5 out of 6 and he said $100,000! Screamed, jumped around and read him the numbers, he said sorry you only won $5,000. Fugger. If I would have had 5 and no powerball it would have been 100k.

One more and it would have been 33 million!

I win stuff, but its a relative question.

I've won tournaments in wrestling and related awards along the way....I've won raffles at conventions.....I won 2500 and 600 the last 2 times I've been to a casino. My real claim to fame is probably that I've won a karoke competition and 2 "best butt" contests.

I'm holding out for the day I win the Leg Lamp though.

Oh, and I won a big thick book about Bruce Springsteen from a radio station once. I didn't read it.

When I was like 6 or 7, my mother put my name in a raffle at the Jones Store to be the Chiefs "mascot", and I won. So Lloyd Burrus walked me out to midfield for the coin toss, I was scared shitless, those guys were huge, and even at that age I knew that the Raiders were the bad guys. It was Bo Jackson's first game back in KC. Got some good pictures, since a family friend worked for the Chiefs official team photographer.

I also won tickets on the radio to go see Paul Mooney (ask a black guy from Chapelle's Show).

thats all, I need to win some money bad though.

When I got to the game, I found out that I wasn't the only winner....there were like 10 other Legion ballplayers from around Kansas. We drew numbers to see who got to actually throw the ball, and I lost. I got to walk out to the pitcher's mound...big woop. Did meet Bret Saberhagen that day though.

The second was to see Damn Yankees, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Poison at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin when I was somewhat older.

Sort of looks odd listing these performers together in the same paragraph, doesn't it? :hmmm:

My wife does the lottery pool at work. About 2 years ago, they got 4 numbers and the powerball. Worth 5000.00. Of course after taxes and splitting it like 20 ways, she got 300.oo or so. The worst part is, they were ONE DIGIT OFF from having the whole enchilada. I felt sick the whole day. The payout would have been like 3.5 million and my ass would be retired right now. One digit off...

...of course, I still buy lottery tickets, even though lightning will never strike twice. I think that's as close as we'll ever get to the jackpot.

OK, I'll help push this one over the top.

Won a radio call-in contest once, for a gift certificate from a sporting goods store, which I used to get some ammo for a .22 semi-auto rifle I had. Heh, I guess the stuff was too hot for the gun though, 'cause the spent shells kept jamming instead of ejecting cleanly. Okay, this story isn't going anywhere but I'm too lazy to edit it, so there.

Nope. Actually, it was fairly new at the time. I don't think I had put more than 20 rounds through it. The regular shells that I had worked just fine, but these little buggers jammed it every time, so I just blamed 'em and put 'em away.

I've won 8 of those giant stuffed animals at Worlds Of Fun(I consider it winning because I've never had to pay near what one would normally cost)on the softball in the milkcan game.

Do they even offer those things for retail? What would they cost? $5? $10?

You should have won a spot in the defensive backfield that day. We might have had a chance. Or, maybe, honorary punter, since they didn't see the field.

Yup. One of the greatest days of my life other than the outcome. I actually got to go to a Chiefs game, let alone a playoff game. Had a ticket to the arrowhead club. Got to watch my favorite team with one of the best offenses ever put up 31 points at home in the playoffs. Got to see Dante return a kick. Got to hear Arrowhead stadium at it's peak noise level for the first time ever at that moment (and the following defensive series...the ONE and only time we stopped em...when Manning smoked us with the 12 men on the field.) Got wasted and had a blast in the stands with other Chiefs fans. But we lost.

Is that really possible? I still don't believe it.
