The Powerball is worth an estimated $365,000,000 tomorrow night. We opened the phones and took lucky numbers. If we win the jackpot, that works out to about $2200 for each KiiM-FM listener (before taxes)!
Here are the four tickets we'll play:
8 - 13 - 7 - 44 - 10 Powerball: 30
28 - 15 - 24 - 27 - 6 Powerball: 14
4 - 30 - 22 - 53 - 42 Powerball 26
3 - 23 - 13 - 8 - 51 Powerball: 6
Here's what some of the numbers chosen by KiiM-FM listeners mean:
3- Dale Earnhart
8- Dale, Jr.
24- Jeff Gordon
8- Dale Jarrett (88 was too high to play in Powerball, so we just used the first eight)
53- How many dollars it costs to fill Shannon Black's husband's Lincoln Navigator full of gas
22- How far over the limit Denise Lopez was driving, last time she got pulled over for speeding
44- One listener's favorite athlete is Reggie Jackson
26- Listener Sharon was married to her husband for 26 years
51- Listener Clint's age at his next birthday (March 4th)
42- How many beers Shannon Black thinks Pork Chop will consume this weekend (today's his birthday!)
23- a listener suggested we add the numbers in our dial position. 9+9+5=23!
6- Both Max & Betsy were born in June
The remaining numbers are an assortment of listener birthdays, anniversaries and lucky numbers
Remember, if we win the entire jackpot, come by the station on Monday for your $2200 (before taxes) check!
