Well one of our brethren managed to beat all odds and score 1/3 of one of the biggest lottery jackpots ever. That's right one of the BIG GAME winners from the 350 million dollar jackpot is a "Portuga" from Englishtown New Jersey. He bought his ticket in Hillside. His last name is Lopes and he's a native of Lisboa.

WHy am I posting this on a soccer forum??


Well just like this man, our select team has some very tall odds to win the World Cup. And if Lady Luck can smile on a Portuguese family there's no reason she won't smile upon a whole country come the World Cup. ;)

Forca PORTUGAL!

At least it went to someone who was in desperate need of some funds (not to mention Portuguese:) ) as opposed to a senior citizen with one foot in the grave and no relatives where the money was sure to end up in some religious institution...

It's me...... Yea ok I wish it was me. ;) But it's real good that a Portuguese person won the lottery, because like Red Eagle said, the World Cup is also somewhat of a lottery.

UPDATE!

i found out more today in school. turns out the guy doesnt really live in englishtown, but rather in the town of Manalapan(where I live) and he lives on the street right off of my street. this area is often referred to as Englishtown for mailing purposes but it is really in the town Manalapan.

This guy apparently has a son and a daughter, the son is a senior at my high school, and the daughter is a freshmen. I had never met them before however(which is unusual because i thought i knew every portuguese person in my area)

The family was in $600,000 debt to creditors, very lucky to have won considering he filed for bankruptcy a few months ago, (although he didnt show up at his court hearing so his creditors continued to hound him) both kids were advised by bodyguards,(who were just appointed to their house) to not go to school, in fear that it could cause problems. ALso, supposedly the night they found out they won, they immediately called for moving vans, but they claim"they are not going anywhere"

an interesting story. i found this all out in school today. im tempted to walk over there because i hear the news people are still there covering the area. im still amazed at the fact that ive never met them, and that their house is merely 150 yards from my house. ill update with more information if i here anything else.

oh by the way real 1 barca 0 at the half

Maybe they could donate the money to a very needy charity or something?

A really needy cause ... a group or something that really needs that cash because they are crippled and pathetic...

I think we would all agree that the money would be going to a good cause if he gave it to....

























S.L. Benfica :dielaugh:




Should be enough to fix one the wheels on their buses anyway ;)

Do em proud Mr Lopes...Benfica need your cash :dielaugh:

Or, on the other hand, you could just buy Deco's right foot with that money ;)

One things for sure, if Mr. Lopes reads your ... whatever that was, there's no way he'll be able to refrain from donating some to you so you can buy yourself some new material.

If this is your way of a getting ahead of the line for some of his new fortune, well, then I admit you got us all beat.
