The Powerball craze swept the United States with everyone hoping to get their share of the $1.5 billion prize. That included a number of athletes who got in on the action and bought tickets. None of them participated in a way as cool as Chris Long.
Some dreams come true finally made the local news tonight. pic.twitter.com/LmZNouUdoL— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 14, 2016
I would say @JOEL9ONE is #winning with his #Powerball appearance on @NBC29. Hope the "old lady" gets her timeshare! pic.twitter.com/gv9RBe1IUm— Matt Talhelm (@MattTalhelm) January 14, 2016
Listen, I didn't win Powerball. You probably didn't win Powerball. But, we all win the Powerball of life because we have Chris Long. If a disguised Chris Long buying lottery tickets on the local news wasn't good enough, he also apparently tried to use a fake name for the segment.
For the record my name was Rod Carriker so Chris long may be a type O— Chris Long (@JOEL9ONE) January 14, 2016
The only way this could be any better is if someone makes a "Rod Carriker, hopeful Powerball player" bobblehead. I'll take 10.
