Also helps to be lucky Mom's brother, my Uncle George, a fireman, was in the Captains office on the day after his promotion
to Lieutenant. Another Captain stopped by and too George's superior he had saved 2 for $1 raffle tickets for him.
George's boss to be was notourusly tight with money and " Said, I'll takew just one, George will take the other
one" What could Uncle George do ?? That's how Aunt Evie got to drive a brand new 1957 Plymouth LOL
After retiring George was in Zizzimos bar who ran a $100 a square with no cut for his customers, A guy
offered to split a square with George. But by the time George got back to the bar the guy had found a new
partner. George walked hom again and came back a bought a square all by himself Got 0&0 , won three
quarters . George and Aunt Evie went to Hawaii

    My Uncle George was lucky in gene pool and in life. Lived to be 100. Was a fireman and got promoted to Lt. this was in 1957 I think. Anyway first day in new firehouse in captain,s office. Another Captain came in and said to 1st Captain “ I saved 2 ticket for my church drawing for you” Ist Captain say I will take one and you will take one , won’t you George . ? That is how my Uncle George won a 1957 Plymouth.
    Years later George was in Zizzimos bar, they had a $100 a square Super Bowl score lottery. A guy asked George to go partners with him. George walked home and git $50 from Aunt Eve. But when he got the guy had got another partner. So George walks home and gets another $50 from Aunt Eve. Buys his own square, gets 0/0 wins 3 quarters $7500. He and Aunt Eve go to Hawaii.
    I see George on bus one day. Tells me he has been betting 729, date numbers went legal in state and has not hit yet over 2 years, even had my sister play for him when he is out of town or on vacation. I play it for a month and hit box for $80. Put $10 to it . Tell wife gonna bet with bookie at work for a month. He pays 650 versus state 500. Three weeks later 729 for $1950.

    Nice try, Buzz. Hope you're doing well. May you live as long as Uncle George.

    Nuke.

    P.s. I'd like to thank MDawg for the detective work.

    May we expect MDawg's name in green shortly?

    Detective work my ass, someone else figured it out and wrote it on another forum not too long ago.

    One might call that good detective work, I call it
    Ratting. And all for what, how was Buzz hurting MDawg or the forum in any way? What was MD's motivation or why was it his business to run and tattle?

    Yeah, I get it, Buzz pissed off the owners of the site and was given a chance to knock it off but still kept going. Buzz isn't a bad guy, It's been years since that incident, Buzz has been a pretty good contributor, perhaps a second chance is in order. Obviously, if that is something Buzz wanted he should go through the proper channels and do it correctly.
