Do You Think You Could Tonight's Powerball?
What would you do if you won $50,000? The first thing I would probably do is pay off one of my student loans, or pay off my car payment. Either one. After that, I'd probably take a nice vacation somewhere, plus buy tickets to any concert I want to see this year. Goo Goo Dolls and OAR at Bethel Woods has been on my radar the moment it was announced.
