I missed the announcement that X was a number (unless Powerball has gone to Roman numerals).

Dang! Those were my numbers! I always play them. They are based on my dog's birthdays and the day my divorce was final. All very lucky days for me, as they have greatly influenced the high level of happiness in my life for years. But now they're gonna say I can't choose those numbers, because it would be cheating, having seen this early news release and all.

I remember an "I dream of Jeanie" like that where Major Healey told Jeanie the wrong date and she gave him a newspaper so he went to the track.
 
Jeanie was really hot.  I wish I was married to her.  Here's some pictures of Barbara Eden...

I knew I should have gone for them Xs, but my sister convinced my to go for an "L" for the last number. Crap.
