Blog Giveaways & Shoreman

It's Saturday morning and since I'm not going fishing, I wanted to make a quick comment on the giveaways that other bloggers and OBN do and why I don't enter.

In years past, I've been give the title of Mr. One Number. Since the California Lottery was established so many years ago, I've played a zillion times. It doesn't matter if I get tickets with numbers I pick or quick picks, if I buy 1,5,10, or 100 tickets, I only get one number. This past Mega Millions draw (380 million) I purchased 5 quick picks. I got one number.

So, what does this have to do with giveaways? I don't win, ever. So I refrain from entering, so other have a better chance of winning. Makes their odds better.

I just wanted to let all of you out there that are doing giveaways, and I think it's a great thing that you do. I just don't want you to think I'm snubbing you, in any way, by not entering.

This has been bothering me for some time now, and I wanted to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening and keep doing what you do.

  1. I never win either so I do not play.

  2. You should have said "I don't play so I never win"

  3. Mark, I'm just happy to have you contribute to my home place when you can. The only thing I've ever really won besides my Rio Gold fly line was my wife. I got the better of the deal I'm sure.

  4. Shoreman - You're a "winner" in my book...

    *holding back laughter*

    Seriously, I'm sure no offense is taken, and I'm happy that you increase MY odds by your absence.
