Like all of us, Dom Brown is from somewhere.
Unlike your somewhere, Dom’s is home to the person who just won the Powerball.
“Holy ***t!” Dom did not exclaim. “I honestly can’t even process this right now. I just… wow. To hear the name of the place you’re from on the news, in relation to a stranger who lives there winning the Powerball, is above and beyond one of my greatest accomplishments as a Major League Baseball player.”
“Damn,” Dom continued without a delirious chuckle. “Ha ha wow.”
It was the Publix super market that sold the winning $590.5 million ticket, sending Zephyrhills’ recently richest citizen into a whole new world. No word yet on whether Dom know the person or cares about the Powerball because he’s a pro ball player, but there was confirmation that he has shopped at this particular supermarket.
“I feel like I won the money, in a way,” Dom continued not saying. “I almost feel like maybe I’m owed a little of that money. Or like, a lot of it. Ha ha ha. I’m joking. But maybe I should get some though.”
