GREAT NEWS! LOTTERY WINNER NEAL WANLESS NOT PLAYING AGAINST YOU!

WINNER, S.D. -Yesterday, the nation’s newest megamillionaire was identified up here as 23-year-old rancher Neal Wanless. Seems Neal won $232,000,100.00 in the local South Dakota Powerball jackpot, as verified by Barney Fife, Jr. down state in Pierre.

Suffice to say, Cowboy Neal probably won’t be competing in our trivia game for Interleague tickets. In fact, we hear from unreliable sources that he’s shopping for a Sag Harbor home and allegedly had this to say about the quest:

“Ya’all know I’m just a white trash, sister-kissing cowhand from Flat Butt, South Dakota but I got me some money now and I want to live near Keef Hernandez.”

Wow! How cool is that?! Our new pal Neal not only becomes the luckiest sonofabitch on the planet but he graciously has taken himself out of the MTM Interleague Trivia Game Giveaway (how’s that for a catchy name?) as well! YOU GUYS ARE SO LUCKY!

So, now that your odds have increased tenfold, why not roll the dice one more time and try to win that elusive chance to win two tickets to the Interleague Series of your choice? Oh, and the tickets don’t fly solo; you also get FIFTY SMACKERS! Yet we digress… As Vince from the Shamwow! commericals would say, Here’s how to order:”
