How Exciting

Today's giant headline in 'The Province': 'One Missing Number Costs Them Millions'.

It's bad enough when we get headilnes about people who won the big jackpot. But now we get headlines about the people who didn't win? I can see tomorrow's headline: "Local man was totally going to pick up Eric Staal in hockey pool - One bad pick costs him hundreds".

I have to stop reading the papers.


  • I thought the unfortunate injury to Mats Sundin was the tipping point.

  • This is what I'm saying - once you open up the can of worms of writing headlines about things that *almost* happened, the possibilities are endless.

  • Has anyone written an intelligent article about lotteries? I mean, EVER?

    I did, however, chuckle at the subheading of the piece you linked.

  • You mean, "Ticket holder needed official printout to confirm precise level of joy"?

    Yeah, that was prety funny. I can see the reaction of the ticket holder now. "Ah man, I was hoping for level of joy 9 but this is only level of joy 3 - this sucks!"

    I imagine that the people who could write an intelligent article about lotteries realize it isn't worth their time, leading us to the current situation.
