If I won $640 million dollars...

I'd hire the same people and build a TRI studio too,.. and invite all you guys and your bands on my dime to check it out.

Yup, that's what I'd do...

For starters :lol:

Every time I see the picture of Jim Irsay with Tiger I'm reminded of the song "Daniel and the Sacred Harp" by The Band...not that he's a bad guy or anything.

Daniel, Daniel and the sacred harp,
Dancing through the clover.
Daniel, Daniel would you mind,
If I look it over.

I heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town
But I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
Tell me Daniel how the harp came into your posession.
Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the the procession?

and Daniel said:
The sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,
And me not being related, I could never be the one.
So I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,
Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.

Three years I waited patiently,
'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee.
He said there is one more thing I must ask,
But not of personal greed.
But I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp,
And said take what you may need.

Now Daniel looked quite satisfied, and the harp it seemed to glow.
But the price that Daniel had really paid, he did not even know.
Back to his brother he took his troubled mind.
And he said dear brother I'm in a bind.
But the brother would not hear his tale,
he said Old Daniel's gonna land in jail.
So to his father Daniel did run,
And he said oh father what have I done.
His father said son you've given in, you know you won your harp,
But you lost in sin.

Then Daniel took the harp and went high on the hill,
And he blew across the meadow like a whippoorwhill.
He played out his heart just the time to pass,
But as he looked to the ground, he noticed no shadow did he cast.

CHORUS

I know there's absolutely no chance if you don't play.

You guys don't have to worry about a thing because I'm absolutely sure I have the winning ticket, and I do share...sometimes. Everyone here will receive the rig of their choice and ten more for back up, free life time food supply, free house and monthly direct deposit of $5000.
OH SHIT, just checked my ticket....I was wrong! :lol:

You're statistically more likely to hit a hole-in-one on two consecutive Par-3 holes.

so you're saying there's a chance


:lol: Best line in the whole movie. :cool:

Not sure I'd want to win that much. A few million to set yourself up comfortably for life would be terrific but that sort of money puts you in the hiring bodyguards to protect your kids league. You get to the point where instead of you owning the money, the money owns you.

Still if it was to fall into my lap I'm sure I could become a patron of a some suitable charitable and artistic endevours starting with underwriting Australian tours of Further and the Dark Star Orchestra.

Hmm.... I notice one of the winners has got greedy and won't share. I guess 8 million or so wasn't enough.

I would buy Rukind.com and make it free for all interested in a grateful dead music forum. Isn't that nice of me?
