Chris Singleton Is Feeling Lucky

We approve of low-risk, high-reward gambling whenever possible, so we don't have much of a problem with NFL suicide pools, NCAA office pools, OTB parlors, those bookies that seem to be on every block in the U.K., and people who spend a few bucks on a lottery ticket because, as the slogan says, "Hey, you never know."

And if you're Washington Wizards forward Chris Singleton, and if you saw that Friday's jackpot was in the neighborhood of $540 million, and if you know that you're making somewhere in the area of $1.5 million this season, the raw numbers might support you taking a little flutter on this.

But ...

Really, Chris? 10 Gs on lottery tickets?

An investment? We didn't realize Fidelity offered an MC Hammer portfolio or we would have been all over that. Someone needs to warn Chris that the lottery isn't like the elementary school penny fair where you drop a bunch of tickets in the jar for the chance to win the pet parakeet like our sister did that one year. Because otherwise, things could get messy.
