I went to the Eagles game last night, while the game was awful, tickets n food were free and i won a raffle for an autographed football, signed by Cullin Jenkins, not my fav player but still was cool to win. However, i think the best prize ive won was one of those scooters that were cool like 10 years ago, i won it on one of those spinning wheels at the board walk, cost me $1 n won on the first try. How about you guys?

$20 on a lottery ticket. I don't have much good luck.

My brother and I won a trip to Sea World when we were real young, 2 stuffed animals (a Lion and a Killer Whale), and a Huffy bike. This was all from the same shopping store drawing. It was pretty sweet!

Then there was the one time my name was in a I think it was Game Informer or one of those older magazines and I won some swag. That was pretty cool as well.

I have really extraordinary luck though I've found like over $200 on the ground just biking/walking around town in the last few years.

You don't have much luck Bear? I've never won anything. I've filled out so many contest surveys for Gamestop and many other places but never win.

I won a spanky for jerking it 12 times in one day, 15 if you count ghost loads.

Well considering that $20 is about the only thing I've ever one and I'm in my mid 40s, I'd say my track record is pretty bad. It's not like I play the lottery much, but I do enter the contests on XBL and other places where they don't want my life history and SS number to enter, but I don't ever win. I think people just don't want to give prizes to bears.

Maybe now that I'm whining about it I'll win that 60 inch Vizio LED TV I entered to win on an XBL contest I saw sponsored by T-Mobile. That would rock!

I won a TV/VCR in a drawing at a grocery store when I was a kid, but I had to split it with my sister. My parents said that it was from an entry that had both me and my sister's names on it, but I think they were feeding us a line of bull so we would have to share. We both filled out slips that had just one name on them.

Still, pretty cool prize until my sister got her period and smashed the irreplaceable remote.

That's why I don't share things with her anymore.

I've never won anything before, in life or in games. My luck is among the worst in the world, while my friends is the opposite. For Example:

We were playing a game where you had to get an item for a quest to increase your maximum inventory space. The item is rare and lots of folks farm the mobs but they spawn quickly. I spent 10 hours farming for it. He came over and killed ONE mob. He got it.

This happens with alarming frequency... sometimes pisses me off.

A locutus of borg diorama from blockbuster way back when. Not really a prize, but i was chosen to be knighted in middle school for being smart/helpful. Even though it was meaningless, they used a real sword and I'm a huge nerd, so i liked it.

Back in middle school I won this sweet boom box in a raffle in the school auditorium. I was the envy of all as I carried it over my shoulder between classes jamming sweet R&B tunes like SWV and R. Kelly. I was awesome!

I typically don't win much, but one day when I was coming home from work, I was stuck in a lot of traffic. I was getting annoyed and started to go through my favorite radio stations to try and pass the time. One started talking about winning tickets to see Cake perform on New Years Eve at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta. I thought what the heck, why not, and dialed the number. Sure enough, the DJ answers the phone! I was definitely one of THOSE people who asks "DID I REALLY WIN?!?!" It was a great concert too!

I won a $200 AmEx gift card in a random drawing once.

When EQ2 came out Sony was holding some big sweepstakes to promote it. I sent in one application and won this $200 camera. I used the hell out of that thing for years until I trashed it at the Sand Dunes in Colorado.

I won a visa to come to the US.
