It’s already been reported that a winning Powerball ticket was sold in Chino Hills, California, on Wednesday night. Many dreams across the nation have been crushed, but we know for sure that one man’s dream has been fulfilled. And no, I’m not talking about whoever won the billion dollar jackpot.

I’m talking about Rams defensive end Chris Long.

For the record my name was Rod Carriker so Chris long may be a type O

Long tried to stay undercover in shades and a hat, but was found by a local news crew in Virginia where he was interviewed for a story about the lottery — check out that golden lower third.

Here is Mr. Chris Long: “Hopeful Powerball Player.”

“I already told my old lady, if we win, we’re going down to Myrtle Beach for about 10 months, and we’re getting a timeshare — the whole nine yards. And maybe a big boat, a couple boats, a lot of boats. We’re gonna have a great time.”

Sounds great, Chris. Sounds great.

NFL fans had lots of jokes about Tom Brady getting flagged for throwing 2 passes on 1 play

Tom Brady has had a long, legendary career that has spanned over 20 years and has included lots of really good history.

On Monday night, however, he made some weird history (I don’t think any other QB has ever done this before and I apologize if someone has), as he completed two forward passes on one play and then was flagged for doing so because that is not allowed.

Brady, who got the benefit of a questionable call earlier in the game against the Rams, caught his own pass after Terrell Lewis batted it back and then Brady tried to get.

NFL fans rightly ripped the refs for blowing what looked like a key fumble by Tom Brady

It felt like old times on Monday night as Tom Brady once again found himself in a tuck-rule situation against the Los Angeles Rams and once again he got bailed out by the refs.

This play was a big one, too, as Brady appeared to fumble the ball inside his own 10-yard line after being hit in the end zone. The refs quickly blew the play dead, which didn’t seem to make any sense and likely took away a touchdown from the Rams, who recovered the ball.

Instead, the play went to a review where it was ruled to be an.

Mike McCarthy fired up the Dallas Cowboys by smashing watermelons

Mike McCarthy hasn’t had the best start to his tenure as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys but Sunday’s win over the Vikings in Minneapolis was a big one that gave his team some life in the dreadful NFC East.

McCarthy reportedly found an interesting way to fire up his guys during Saturday’s final meeting before the game – he smashed a bunch of watermelons with a sledgehammer in what was a total football guy move that his players loved.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero has the details on this story, which includes McCarthy bashing watermelons so much that his pants were.

Dreams do come true.

EARTH CITY, Mo. — Never one to miss a chance to have a little fun, Rams defensive end Chris Long donned a hat, sunglasses and some camouflage to go with his fully developed mustache during a visit to a Charlottesville, Virginia, convenience store on Wednesday.

With the nation gripped in a Powerball frenzy as the prize rose to nearly $1.6 billion, many local news outlets have been conducting person-on-the-street interviews with those buying tickets.

Long apparently went unrecognized by a reporter for NBC 29 in Charlottesville and was asked the standard question of what he would do if he won the grand prize.

“I already told my old lady if we win we’re going down to Myrtle Beach for about 10 months and we’re going to get a timeshare and the whole nine yards,” Long said on the broadcast. “Maybe a big boat, a couple boats, you know, a lot of boats. And we’re going to have a great time.”

According to Long’s Twitter feed, someone at the station must have recognized him before the segment aired because the on-screen graphics showed his real name even though he said the name he gave the reporter was Rod Carriker, “so Chris Long may be a typo.” Long was more than happy to share the evidence of his newfound celebrity status and offer further endorsement of the video’s investment strategy.

Long, of course, was only joking about the 10-month vacation — he actually recently returned from a postseason vacation to the Virgin Islands — and the rest of his big plans. But he pulled off the prank with a straight face and didn’t miss a chance to revel in the success of his big media appearance.

Chris Long got in on Powerball fever and stood for a man-on-the-street interview, resplendent in mustache and camouflage.
