An unidentified 52-year old Maryland man turned in his Mega Millions lottery ticket just in time. He waited till one day before it was going to expire to turn it in. It also appears that he does not want anyone to know who he is. They only identify him as being from Elkton, Md and that the ticket was purchased there at a convenience store back in June of 2009.
He claims that he didn’t even know that he was in possession of the ticket. He said he was paying his car insurance bill and just happened upon the ticket while putting the papers back in the “console” of his car. Then, the story gets even more unbelievable. He said he looked at the ticket and figured someone had already claimed the prize, but something made him look it up online.
Hmmmmmmmmm…that’s when he finds out he was a winner. I don’t care what anyone says, somebody has been on his ass for some dough and he held on to that ticket sweatin’ like a hooka in church wondering what might happen if he went in and claimed the money and they identified him. He didn’t want to end up in the position of Abraham Shakespeare.
