Listening to the radio pays off

About five years ago I won a radio station contest. It was tickets and backstage passes to meet Tracy Lawrence. It was fun winning and a big adrenaline rush. I decided I should try to win more...Well, I did win more and I kept on winning. I'm not sure why I've been so blessed but I am VERY thankful. I thought I should write down all the prizes I have won over the last five years(not all from the radio).

You've got to be kidding me. I knew that you said that you'd won a lot, but I had NO IDEA. Sure it takes some luck, but I also think that you've developed some major contest winning skills. WOW!

I don't think it's 'good luck'. I think you may be SUPERNATURAL or something!

That's incredible!
