Dom Brown Delirious with Joy Over Thing that Happened


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 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.”
