Last Tuesday I did not win the multi-state lottery. I rarely play, but when it gets up to $212 million dollars, I might drop a whole $5 dollars.

BUT!!!....Later that day, as I am waiting in the school parking lot for my daughter,....my friend (the one that lost her Steeler-fan father recently and I tried to send her a Steelers cap to show my support)...walks up to the car and hands me a brand-new...tags still attached.......black...Starter-brand Steelers winter coat.

She had bought it for her father but he never made it home from the hospital before she could give it to him...and as a friend she knew I would appreciate it.

I was humbled, honored, and excited with the gift and promised her I would wear it with pride!!!!

Didnt win the lottery....but its all good.

Money can't much replace what happens between two people who care about eachother.

Also, if someone offered me 100 million to never have kids...I'd turn it down. Just me, but the daughter is you winning the lottery too.

Awesome!!!!!! :tt: I have to buy a new Steelers' coat for next year. This chintzy pleather G-III coat I picked up last fall is already falling apart. :banging: Meh.

Whatever you do, do not buy this coat. I want you all to avoid my frustration.

Sorry to hear about the Luck in the lottery. Commendable deed by the giver of the jacket.

That is just the same as winning the lottery in my book.
