Indeed he is. And all because of other people having a bad gambling habit. And I become a winner also. Every time he finds a ticket that has money on it because someone thought it was a loser, I get an order of fried clams. It is the price he has to pay for doing it all on my computer.
Now we just have to wait for the drawing for the Ice Skating competition. His mailman has a teen son. Thanks to Spike's winning, the boy has his wall covered with signed memorabilia of the Boston Bruins Hockey Team. A couple of shirts, hockey sticks. posters, etc.
My grandson has the same for the Red Sox. And my girlfriend's daughter in Atlanta is a Patriot's fanatical fan and has a jacket, couple of hats, posters, etc. She has a football signed by the whole team including Brady and Gronkowski.
Spike is running out of people to give this stuff to when he wins. He keeps the cash, but always gives the tickets and other stuff to folks he knows.
What gets me is he will tell you "I'm not proud." He picks up tickets off the street, goes through a barrel where ever he sees one. He doesn't care. One of those tickets could be the BIG one! And he has everyone in the family doing the same thing. Even me. I have become a garbage picker!
