Bingo Banter – March 2, 2019

 In NCI News

Here we are with another Bingo Banter!  Back after a couple of weeks as there were extenuating circumstances that kept it from happening, but now, have at it!

First, you need to know that March is coming in kind of like a lion.  Plenty of cold weather and even some snow.  The lamb might start by the end of the upcoming week though, looking at minus-single digits from Thompson going south to the US Border.  In other good news, the Jets won last night and the Blue Bombers are (so far) undefeated in 2019! And remember, Ray St. Germain likes curling – both the game and his hair.

Woman, at 83, buys first lotto ticket, wins $40,000

Talk about beginners luck!  I believe I won the princely sum of $0 from the first lotto ticket I ever bought.  This Delaware woman doesn’t know what she’ll do with the cash either.  I think part of the lotto experience is dreaming about what you’ll do with the winnings, and she hasn’t even gone that far.  Sad.

Woman, 77, sits on iceberg, floats away

Talk about rotten luck!  I believe I have the good sense not to sit on a chunk of ice that could drift out to sea.  This Texas woman doesn’t know that ice can be dangerous.  I think part of living in a place like Texas is not knowing that frozen water can, at time, do its best to kill you.  Crazy.

Man, 71, sits in barrel, floats across ocean

Talk about trying to avoid bad luck!  I believe I haven’t heard anything quite as ambitious as trying to float across the entire Atlantic Ocean in a barrel.  This French man doesn’t have anything better to do with his time, I guess? I think part of his life must have been spent doing something very boring and now he’s trying to compensate.  Bizarre.

Man, young, scratches many lotto tickets, loses $1000s

Talk about trying to get lucky!  I believe that the creators of the internet probably didn’t expect their creation to be used to watch someone scratch off $50,000 worth of lotto tickets.  This YouTuber must be burning through his trust fund or racking up the credit card bills.  I think part of the lotto experience is dreaming about what you’ll do with the winnings, not trying to maximize your YouTube viewership.  Foolish.

That’s it for another week of Bingo Banter! All the best everyone, and talk to you next week! Remember to check our bingo page for details about today’s game.  If you happen to be visiting from the future (hello time traveller!) remember that the online bingo updates aren’t archived from week to week, so this recap won’t point to the numbers that were called out for the game at the date at the top of this post.
