I won! I won!

  1. Only twice in my life have I ever won something. Both times they were things I had absolutely no use for, but things other people went freakin crazy over. Both of them were sports related

    Except for my hockey, and a soccer game played by my son, I hate sports.

    The Enfamil reps had a raffle for the nurses. This was on Monday. My name was in it, but I wasn't there. Never heard a thing about it. Never had a second thought about it. Until people kept asking me today about "the game." Turns out I won Cleveland Indians tickets! Me? I found the tickets in my bosses desk drawer, and thought it was weird that she didn't call me to notify me, until I remembered she's a Tribe fan....

    But hey! I won! I'm auctioning them off tomorrow at work to whoever makes me the best offer!

    Can't wait to see the look on my bosses face when she learns I gave them up for something silly like movie tickets! :chuckle :chuckle

    I won baseball tickets once at a raffle at work. Problem was I was scheduled to work and couldn't get anyone to switch with me.
    So I gave them away! Only thing I ever won too and I couldn't even ******* go.
    Congrats to you Heather, have fun auctioning them off. Let us know what your bosses reaction was.

    By the way what were you doing in your bosses drawer?

    Congratulations Heather.,,,
    haven't you ever heard of the old superstiton that you're not suppose to give anything away that you've won....it's considered to be giving your luck away!!! i know you're not a sports fan & want to just trade the tickets for something else, but do be careful...you would win anything else in the future... lol!!!

    I guess I'm lucky...I've won a trip to Rome for 2, backstage Melissa Etheridge passes, $50 in Walmart merchandise, a box of Rogers knives, and a big box of Disney books.

    But, not only do I NEVER win in Vegas, anyone with me loses too!

    Congrats to you! And don't forget to let us know the outcome...
    I won a 10" color TV once by naming a new cable TV news program called Eyewatch 13 news or Eyewatch 13. I don't even remember. the kicker was I had to appear on the show to receive it. I tried to get my girlfriend to go for me, but she wouldn't, so I had no choice. I was a nervous wreck, but the TV looks good on my kitchen counter.
