ASU is about more than sports and at that Crow is brilliant. The only question here is what took so long? She was removed from the football coach process.

Shame, I'd have thought they would have stayed. We got there just before five and met 'em all (Whitney couldn't make it). Long line though, we started around the Chop house and after we got in by the stair area, we could see the line went past the team shop.... yikes!

It was funny... the players telling us that Doan needs his own session, cause he talks so much. Did Torres, Vrbata, Bissonette, Morris, Yandle and Hanzal started walking down the line (instead of sitting and waiting), did they not go through the entire line?

Thanks for all the advice guys, I haven't made up my mind about what to do with my truck yet, just want to have all my options available.

It has been a rough year. New spark plugs and cables, new rear CV axles, rebuilt prop-shaft, replaced timing belt, replaced brakes, replaced Evap Solenoid, replaced ignition module.

Still needing replacement/rebuilding: vapor canister, front prop-shaft, front CV axles, front shocks, steering stabilizers, and who knows what else.

Always fun...

Ignorant question here, but what are the advantages to becoming a sponsor?

No ads. And when the board blows up on trade deadline or draft day, you can still read. But mostly...no ads.

When I'm on my iPhone, I don't really see the ads. Does it help minimize infractions?

Expect value of the ticket is actually positive now that the jackpot is so high. Simply put, the value of the ticket is actually more than a dollar given the odds and potential payout.

...unless if you have to split the winnings, which seems a likely scenario with how many tickets are being sold...

Here's a full list of the benefits:
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/an...ouncementid=44

There are some other perks from time to time. For example some years on Trade Deadline day the trade forum may be restricted that only sponsors and mods can start new threads. Everyone can still post in an existing thread, but the limitation helps reduce the number of duplicate threads when a big trade takes place.

Pick lots of high numbers

It doesn't increase your odds of winning, but it does increase the odds you'll split with fewer co-winners since so many folks like using birthdays and other dates in their tickets.

I'm pretty sure I have a better chance at turning into a werewolf than winning the lottery.

lets just all commit to pooling resources and everyone here purchase a lottery ticket in advance of Friday. We ALL commit to purchasing this team in cash if any of us win?

Lottery is still a tax on the poor, but a buck every now and then is harmless

Its a bummer the purchase of the parking bonds is not on the table anymore. Last year that is what I would have done with the money.

So much one can buy with that kind of money. However just getting the 250k 2nd prize(or more if you play the megaplyer) is life changing onto itself.

I feel like most people who buy lottery tickets know the odds are long, but the people who buy them regularly do so for one of two reasons:

1) They like to dream. My mom's long-term (more than a decade now, and they'd be common law married in some states) boyfriend is a fairly well off guy who should be able to retire comfortably in only a few years, but he buys a lottery ticket every Friday, not because he has any expectation of winning (he's in the insurance business and has a pretty good sense of odds and risk and all that) but because he likes to imagine what he would do if he were that rich.

2) The odds of winning the lottery are long, but they perceive their odds of climbing a few rungs on the economic ladder are even longer. Depending on your worldview, this is either defeatist or pragmatic, but it's understandable regardless.
