What might have been. I could have won $100,000.

I have played one particular scratch-off ticket by the Tennessee lottery which I buy at that same store everyday.  The ticket is the $5 Platinum Payout, and the most I had ever won on it was twenty-dollars. The clerk at this rinky-dink store told me that I was the only person that buys that particular ticket and that one day I would get lucky.

Well, lucky I was not.   Last week, I skipped buying the ticket for a few days and according to the stores owner, only 3 of them had been sold -- and the last of which was a $100,000 winning ticket.  The person who purchased the ticket was from out of town and had never been to that store before.

Had I purchased the Platinum Paytout ticket as I normally had, it is very likely that I would have been jumping up and down in the streets as a $100k winner.  As it is now, I am only left with what might have been. 

My name is Sean and this is a true story.

A lesson learned, thanks CBSsportsline.

I have revised this blog to show my appreciation for CBSsportsline's fairness with me in private conversation regarding an improper and off-topic post I made on the main CBB board a little over a week ago. 

I will try to limit my posts on the boards to sports related topics as best as I can, and will post non-sports related comments on my personal blog.  I definetely don't want to have a repeat post in which there is a chance that I may offend anyone.

Thank you again Sportstline staff and moderators.

Sean.

No Parade All-American, but McDonald's liked him.

I posted this elsewhere, but then decided it was dying faster then my rating, so I decided it make it my first blog entry.  If you haven't seen it already, I hope you enjoy.

McDonald's Job Application

This is an actual job application that a 17-year-old boy submitted at a McDonald's Restaurant in Florida, and they hired him because he was so honest and funny!

NAME: Greg Bulmash

SEX: Not yet. Still waiting for the right person.

DESIRED POSITION: Company's President or Vice President. But seriously, whatever's available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn't be applying here in the first place. 

DESIRED SALARY: $185,000 a year plus stock options and a Michael Ovitz style severance package. If that's not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.

EDUCATION: Yes

LAST POSITION HELD: Target for middle management hostility.

SALARY: Less than I'm worth.

MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.

REASON FOR LEAVING: It sucked.

AVAILABLE TO WORK: Of course! That's why I'm applying.

PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30-3:30 p.m., Monday Tuesday and Thursday.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?: Yes, but they're better suited to a more intimate environment.

MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?: If I had one, would I be here?

DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITIONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 50 LBS?: Of What?

DO YOU HAVE A CAR?: I think the more appropriate question here would be "Do you have a car that runs?"

HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITION?: I may already be a winner of the Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes.

DO YOU SMOKE?: On the job, no; on my breaks, yes.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy dumb sexy blonde super model who thinks I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I'd like to be doing that now.

DO YOU CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE?: Yes. Absolutely.

SIGN HERE: Aries

I found this on the internet and thought it was too funny to pass up.  

 -Sean
