C.J. Wilson is going to build Giraffic Park if he wins the Powerball jackpot
I'm rooting for C.J. Wilson to win the Powerball lottery. Yes, I know it's less likely that he (or any of us) will win than for Bartolo Colon to hit an inside-the-park home run, and I know that as a professional athlete, he already has millions of dollars. But he also has the best idea I've yet heard for how to spend the $1.5 billion jackpot. As Wilson told Fox Sport's The Buzzer:
"I would buy a ranch and put giraffes on it and call it Giraffic Park."
I was interested in his idea, but then I got to "call it Giraffic Park," and now I want to go out to buy a dozen Powerball tickets and give them all to Wilson.
Buy an island? Travel everywhere by private jet? Fine ideas, but they all pale in comparison to a giraffe-themed real-world Jurassic Park. Do you think we could cancel the lottery and just give the money to Wilson?
Wilson would also give a share of the winnings to his own and other charities, which is even more of a reason to root for him.
