A 10,000-to-1 Longshot Hits in Toledo

A decision to play the winning score in the Michigan-Ohio State game has paid off for six men in Toledo. The group watched the game at Flav's Variety Store and when the Buckeyes won, 42-39, one of the customers said, "Play the winning score. Whatever it is. Winner's score first," store manager James Foster told the Toledo Blade. The numbers 4-2-3-9 were drawn and the men won $5,000. Lottery officials said the odds of those numbers coming up were 10,000 to 1. "It's just astronomical odds that it happened, but I'm glad they won," Foster said. "Just wish it would have been me."
