08:01 AM ET 11.29 | Forgive tens of thousands of people who were rooting for the already very rich Larry Fitzgerald to win the lottery. Why? Because he was going to give most of it away. The 29-year-old bought three Powerball tickets and posted a picture of them on his Facebook and Twitter pages, offering to split the winnings with anyone who shared or retweeted the post. [From Twitter:] "I bought 3 tix for #powerball. RT this & if I win I will split it with YOU!! All RTs become partners on my tickets!!" As of Wednesday at midnight, more than 89,000 people had shared the photo on Facebook and almost 28,000 had retweeted it. Splitting the prize evenly would give each person around $5,000.

What a nightmare if he had won. He knew the odds would prevent that from ever happening.

November 29, 2012  08:29 AM ET

He's not winning anything else this year, or anytime in the future if he stays with this team.

Not likely he would share his harem of women though

He seems to be genuine.

The Class Action settlement would have been epic.

LOL. I have a feeling there is a SB win in his future, but not with the Cards.

Larry Fitzgerald would hit the lottery if he signed with the Saints. Wow, what a tandem of Drew Brees and Larry Fitzgerald.
Speaking of the Saints did you read where the ramp workers at the Atlanta airport egged the Saints players and bus as they arrived last night. Atlanta has no class whatsoever. Don't see where anyone with the Falcons organization denounced this cheap and childish act by employees of the airport. Hope the Saints take it out on the Atlanta QB and I mean take out, my man. Finish them for the season.
Sure the Saints fans will remember this when they next visit the Superdome for a regular season game. Notice I did not say Super Bowl because they will only be there as spectators.

Which means it could be someone from California. There were plenty of people from So Cal flooding over the border to play.

Does Fitzgerald receive royalties for all the people that go to his twitter site?

Because wishing physical harm upon someone just because they play for a football team you don't like is really classy, right? Hey, maybe if he died, that would make the Saints' season extra special! Yay! Let's keep our fingers crossed!
