You've all heard about the big PowerBall jackpot recently ... about $325M annuity value, worked out to about $113 lump sum after taxes? Well, we won in that same drawing!

Yeah ... my wife and I got the Power Ball and one other match! That's a $4 payoff! Of course, we bought 3 plays at $1 each, so the net is a dollar. My half of the winnings is 50 cents.

Is there ANYTHING in the world of cycling that I can buy for 50 cents?

Do something good for yourself! Plan ahead. Set goals. Put it toward something you have always wanted, NOW is the time! Those velcro pant leg straps? A quarter inch of handle bar wrap? How about some of those fancy shoe laces all the folks on your cycling club have been drooling over? Start saving for these purchases with the end goal in sight. Don't follow these foolish idealists on their crusade to spend you winnings in one fell swoop!!
Congrats either way!

I'm sure there's a ton of companies that don't even remotely sound like Enron or MCI, that'd love your investment dollar!

Be the bike.

How about a sticker?

Could get a couple of spokes, maybe some nipples.
