Being a Royals Fan never felt so good for this guy.

Being a Royals Fan never felt so good for this guy.
The guy from Dearborn Missouri who won the powerball picked his numbers based on old royals jersey numbers. He won $290,000,000.
#5 George Brett
#23 Mark Gubicza
#16 Bo Jackson
#22 Dennis Leonard
#29 Dan Quisenberry
#6 Willie Wilson

Now if that isn't a reason to love the Royals nothing is.

EDIT: Apparently the man who won didn't win after all. His wife won and she has confirmed that the numbers were quick pick and in fact not the numbers of Royals greats. So much for a good season of luck.

If D had one you better believe he'd have bought someone some cases. Too bad I don't know the guy. I think I heard his whole town only had like 500 people in it. I say he gives each $4,000,000 and calls it a day.

Personally I'd rather see 290 people win a million bucks than one person win $290,000,000.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.
