Unlucky and Lucky

A 22-year-old man from Hyannis, Massachusetts had been down in the dumps since his girlfriend dumped him, but winning a 30.5 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot is certainly perking up his spirits.  The man showed up at state lottery headquarters in Braintree Wednesday with his mother, sister, and niece to claim his prize, which after taxes works out to be around 23 million bucks, reports the Boston Globe.  At a lottery press conference, the lucky winner, who has worked two jobs to try to support his family ever since his father died, understandably said of his love life, “I was heartbroken at first, but now I’m getting over it.”

With some of the money, the man says he’ll pay off his mother’s house and look into getting a degree from the University of Massachusetts — which he previously couldn’t afford. He split a 61 million dollar prize with another winner from Fresno, California.
