    I won a hat from the Will Smith film Wild Wild West. I fired that straight into the garbage.

    Elton John ticket Caesars palace. Great show , when I went to give the lady $250 for the ticket...i sat next to her after looking to buy a ticket to the show. We had a good time, at the end she handed my money back and said have a good time with your wife.
    my wife was sitting with another group, show was sold out and we just split up after asking to buy tickets outside entrance. Great show! Awesome lady.

    BTW a nice family approached my wife and gave her the ticket for 1/2 price...we both saw Elton for $150 or so. Tiny guy is larger than life...

    I enter contests a lot. I also won tickets to see Peter Pan, Steve and Eydie, a bull riding contest, and a rainbow wind sock. That's all I won over my entire life.

    Well, that wind sock was pretty good. It lasted a good long time before fading.

    I win sales contests at work sometimes. It's usually a trip to Mexico or an IPad or amexcard or like that.

    One year, I won a trip for two to the Super Bowl. I'm a football fan etc but I also try to be wise about finance.

    I know a guy who "knows guys", worked through him, met one of these guys he knows, he took the tickets - I took $12,000 in cash, a cab ride back to the hotel and I was in the lobby bar before kick off.

    My hamster won a ball rolling contest at the mall and I won a huge Habitrail hamster compound
    It was awesome.

    Got her a friend a month later to share the huge Habitrail we/I won he knocked her up she had a litter of
    7 babies and promptly devoured each and every one.

    I was 11 and traumatized.

    I won Seinfeld tix back in the day, right near or at the end of his tv show from a radio station for being the 9th caller. 5th row dead center. I won the contest on a Monday, every day of the week the tix went up a row, so Fri winner was in front row. I never get through usually, let alone be the right caller. I've won some raffles before but never anything awesome

    They have awful dry Knott's Berry Farm jam thumbprint cookies where I went. Plus I gave platelets and I sat there for hours watching Disney's Cars and Cars 2, and I haven't given blood since.
