Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Windsor Star: Windsor woman wins big on sports picks

A Windsor woman, who slept through most of last weekend's NFL games, predicted the winners of all 14 games and claimed $548,532 - the largest Pro Picks Pools prize on a single sports lottery ticket in Ontario.

Krista Durham, who purchased the ticket at a convenience store on Ottawa Street, said she had never bet on the games before and wasn't particularly fond of the sport.

"I fell asleep while the games were playing," said Durham, a 35-year-old married auto detailer. "I have no idea which teams are good or bad.

"All I did was fill in the boxes. I remember thinking when I finished what a pretty pattern it made," Durham told lottery officials when she claimed her prize.

Oy vey!

The largest previous prize was another Pro Picks win of $448,242 in September.

After being asked what she planned to do with the prize, Durham said: "First point me to the nearest shoe store. I need to add to my collection."

A sister-in-law of Durham reached by The Star Wednesday night said the couple travelled to Toronto on Tuesday to claim their prize and remained there Wednesday night.

She said she would pass on a request for an interview but said the couple were not likely to want the publicity.

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
