Area Greenwich Man: Shoulda Been Me

All Frank Farricker is saying is that if he’d bought the winning Powerball ticket? He would’ve acted like it meant something to him, unlike Mr. It’d Kill Me To Crack A Smile over here.

Farricker, a fellow Greenwich resident who is chairman of the Connecticut Lottery Corp., presented a poster-sized check to the trio during a news conference Monday. “To their credit, they did show up to Rocky Hill in a very large stretch limo,” Farricker told Greenwich Time. “They were in suits.”…When Farricker left lottery headquarters Monday, he said that officials there were in the processing of cutting a single check to the winners of the historic jackpot. “I think I would have cried if I had actually seen the check,” Farricker said. “My joke to people is if I ever won a lottery like that, my press conference would be at the airport.”

    @MillionaireNxtDoor- he would have showed up in a Murcielago LP 640, given the 750 is probably still on back order. God Bless the 1%
