And now he's been honored with his own commemorative scratch-off lottery tickets, designed specifically to help the children of North Carolina become more smarter. Or something.
Lottery executive director Tom Shaheen said the ticket could help attract new players.The tickets feature SIXTEEN different scratchy areas, which represent the 16 separate championship belts that Flair won during his career. So, yeah, that's awesome.
"We are always looking for ways to appeal to new players so we can maximize sales and generate as much money as possible for education."
Also awesome: the chance to win $100,000, which is the top payout for the Flair tix (on sale September 22, resident NC degenerates!).
Something else to look out for: me writing a post about "Top 10 Athletes Who Need Their Own Lottery Ticket," because that's just too much comedy gold to pass up. Or, alternately, good luck. Would you really not buy a ticket with Big Shot Robert Horry on it?
