    Eighty-five Illinois Lottery winners last week probably thought they were lucky ó until they tried to cash in their winnings, that is.

    Their checks, totaling $159,000 in lottery winnings, were no good.

    LMAO with the semantics. Dude, when someone doesn't get their money, what the heck is the difference?

    Now I know why they don't allow guns in Chicago.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
