Shannon Sharpe wins the lottery

NFL Hall of Famer, pregame show talking head and mortal enemy of salad bar spray guards Shannon Sharpe won the lottery yesterday. No, not the big Powerball $500 million one, but the lottery nonetheless. He tweeted that he won $1200 and is another example of why wealthy people should not advertise any moments of financial luck thanks to the totally predictable Twitter backlash.

Maybe a "rich sportsball person" would use his winnings for good, or maybe Shannon will just hire Jay Pharoah to run errands for him, all while doing his Shannon Sharpe impression. Which is a better use of the funds? The second one. Obviously.
