A $10 Million Missed Opportunity

Did you hear about Jim Furyk, the pro golfer who overslept on August 25th, missed his tee-off time, and thereby lost his chance to win $10 million in the FedEx Cup tournament?

“I’m beside myself” said Furyk as he arrived beltless, sockless, with his shoes untied at the golf course – alas a few minutes too late under PGA Tour rules.

It reminds me of a time some years ago when a man was mailed the winning Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes number that would have won him $10 million; but he didn’t follow the rules that included sending his entry back to Publishers Clearing House. So the poor guy forfeited a $10 Million SuperPrize – which was awarded to someone else!

When we ask people how they’d feel if that happened to them, they say, “I’d be devastated” or even “I’d slit my wrists!”

Well, let’s not go overboard! But the point is: if you want to win you must enter!

Since 2009, Doris Gray won our “$5,000 A Week for Life” SuperPrize, and Joseph Beame, Stephanie Gornichec and Marilyn Ragin won Million Dollar SuperPrizes from PCH. They wouldn’t have won if they had been “asleep at the switch” and had not entered the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

So wake up, America! You can’t sleep through this one and expect to come up a winner! Click here on this link to pch.com and enter at once. You wouldn’t want to be like Jim and end up with a $10 Million missed opportunity!

Good luck.

    I would love to win this superprize with all my heart because it would help my family so much and I could really use it at this time to help my family and other people or organizations that are dear to my heart. I just pray to God that he sees fit this wonderful Super Prize and allows me to win! I have a lot of faith in God, Jesus Christ, and holy Blessed Trinity will allow me to win this wonderful and great Super Prize. I could do so much have something more leftover for my family. This would mean the world to me and others in my family., Jesus Christ, and the holy Blessed Trinity allows me to win. I have so much faith in them that I feel Don come the Sun, and the Holy Spirit is something short of nature. Please Lord bless me with this with my family and others out in the world that need it!
