I love this line from TFA:

Knowlton, a movie buff, said since the number didn't have the "555" exchange that often signals the fakes found on TV, and he thought it was likely real, so he called it.

Because that's such an obscure thing only a "movie buff" would know.

So, this guy who wins is a producer for a "Video News Company" in Manhattan. And the story gets national coverage.

Yeah, this wasn't rigged at all.

In addition to the tickets, Knowlton will get ...$2,500 to offset taxes

This is honestly the most badass part of the story. He'll probably still owe something, but it wouldn't surprise me they calculated it pretty close and his final tax bill comes out to be ~$20.

Pretty clever advertising. Not sure what I'd do with Super Bowl tickets though. Sell then on eBay I guess, I can think of a million things I'd rather do than go to a football game full of crowds of noisy people.

Krustofsky: At some point 867-5309 was a legit number in central PA.  I think it was a plumbing business.

It was a legit number in many area codes.

/Gee, why do we have area codes anyway?

I would sell the tickets.  Who wants to go freeze their ass off and pay god who knows what for a beer.  I'm going to have a good time instead.
