    Default Carmel, New York couple wins lottery twice

    NEW YORK, Aug. 31 (UPI) -- A New York couple has won the state lottery for the second time in 11 years, twice beating odds of more than 22 million to 1 against.

    "It's a great feeling," said Eugene Angelo Sr., 81, after learning that he and his wife Adeline, 74, had the sole $5 million winner in the twice-weekly Lotto game.

    They also won the lottery for $2.5 million in December 1996, the New York Post reported Friday.

    "We're a little older, a little wiser, and there are a few more of us when you count the grandkids," Angelo, a retired construction worker who moved out of the Bronx after winning the lottery the first time, told the Post. "But we're still the same old people. Still very excited."

    His son, Eugene Jr., said his father has spent $42 a week on lottery tickets since the state lottery began nearly 30 years ago. $65,520

    my question is why is it more times than not its always older people
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    Older people have nothing else to do and can actually remember to go to the gas station and BUY the tickets. Unlike the rest of us who always forget because there just is no time between baseball practice, horseriding lessons, going to the grocery store....need I say more?

    Besides, I like it when old people win. They probably need it.
