Ok gang, contest time. I will send a PREMIUM fiver to the member who correctly picks the number of the red powerball of the Saturday, November 2nd 2019 Powerball drawing. Obviously, eligible numbers are 1-26.
But I have a twist for all you lurkers, non-commentators and folks who just aren't that interesting or intelligent.
You can trump homebody else's pick. Someone else posts your number? So what, post after them. The last correctly picked number wins. Each pick must be in a separate post. If you have multiple picks in a single post, !@#%$ you, I'm only using the first number listed. You can enter as many times as you want, you can enter all 26 numbers for all I care. But somebody else might post after you, so... post early and often and late.
All current members are eligible. Oh, btw, I'm also entering this contest. I don't want any of you !@#%$ers to win my cigars.
EDIT: Entry cut-off is 10:59 PM Eastern, 8:59 PM Pacific. The timestamp in the winning post will determine eligibility.
