Elaine Fulps, a 60-year-old woman who attended Tuesday night's Grand Prairie AirHogs game, was rewarded by winning the evening's special promotional prize: a $10,000 funeral.
"I almost croaked many times," said Fulps, who was wearing a neck brace – the most recent effect of about 20 surgeries she's undergone for various medical problems. "God still has me around for a reason. To win a funeral."
I did this once. I rented a bingo hall and promised the same prize to one lucky senior citizen. Then I was all, "Surprise! You ALL win!" They were really thrilled until I released the hounds. Oh man, what a hoot. If they hadn't been so old and bothersome to their families, someone surely would have pressed charges.
