    I play the same six numbers (all for Tech players). I dream of winning one of those huge pots and turning Tech's athletic department upside down and starting from scratch. I think a big statute of me would look great.

    I believe I could write a check that would result in some changes...especially if it were one of those pots that net out at $100,000,000...the looks on faces would be priceless.

    Perhaps its best I don't win the lottery. People would begin looking at a forty year old man in a gorilla suit mighty funny.

    Re: What would you do if you won the LOTTERY?

    This depends on the amount of the lottery. Are we talking about a 250 million powerball ticket or 5 million in the TX lottery. No matter the amount I would divide it like this:

    25% I would give to the church and other christian organizations worldwide

    25% I would put into investments

    25% I would give away to family and friends - this includes my La Tech donation

    25% I would keep for myself and spend like crazy

    Then buy an Icee machine, Wurlitzer JukeBox, 3 cases of chocolate Moon Pies and a case of Johnnie Walker Black Label....

    Re: What would you do if you won the LOTTERY?

    I'd buy my pop a fully restored 67 chevelle supersport. I'd pay off my mortgage. I'd buy a Z-71 and a duck camp. I'd give Tech a chunk and let Dhussbone make the rest work for me.

    Re: What would you do if you won the LOTTERY?

    Hopefully, there would be enough to do the following:
    Give Tech athletics a nice sum
    Give all my family a nice sum
    Make and arrangement with a non-profit that I like to do the things that I think they should do with the money to improve on services
    Buy a nice home
    Buy a nice car
    Buy and RV for Tech games
    Invest a lot of it
    Put a lot in a an account to live off the interest

    The above requires a substantial amount. I do not have it broken down by percentages, but depending on the amount 10 million to 100 million, I have everything I would do planned out.

    I hardly ever play the lottery, though, so it probably won't be me that gets this.

    I'd find out how much I would have to pay Champ110 to vote Republican in the next presidential election.
