As part of the Redskins partnership with the Virginia Lottery, there is a Second Chance Sweepstakes offered on five dollar scratch-off tickets.
According to the promotion’s website:
If you don’t win a prize with your Hail to the Redskins ticket, you can enter it in the Redskins sweepstakes for a second chance to win prizes (including tickets to Redskins home games and fun trips with the team to away games…
To win the lottery takes pretty extreme odds. To turn a losing lottery ticket into a winner is even more challenging (when it’s tempting to just throw the losing tickets away).
But to win the Second Chance Sweepstakes twice in the span of a month? You’d have to be Jim and Maria Nothwehr.
“All we did was take our five-dollar losing lottery tickets and enter them online,” Jim explained. “And we’ve been selected twice now.”
As a reward for their lottery perseverance, the pair has traveled to Dallas and Carolina on the team plane, stayed in the team hotel, visited the team rallies, stood on the sidelines for the team warmup, and watched their favorite team take on two NFC rivals.
That’s a pretty good return on their $10 investment. After landing two of the first three road trips, I couldn’t help but wonder why they had such bad luck for the St. Louis road trip. Read more »

As I may have mentioned several hundred times in this space, the Fit For You 5K is Saturday, and everyone in the D.C. area should come out. You should come because it’s for a great cause — promoting health and wellness — via Play 60, a joint program with the NFL and the American Heart Association. You should come because it’s a chance to meet Christy Cooley, Tanya Snyder, and other Women of Washington. You should come just because it’ll be a pleasant walk. You should come because I’ll be there.
But if those reasons aren’t enough, here’s one more: thanks to the Virginia Lottery, I’ll be handing out a few sets of party deck passes for Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
For the specifics of the giveaways, you should be sure to follow me on Twitter. But here’s one thing I’ll tell you: there were a fair number of dogs at the inaugural event in Indianapolis, but not nearly enough of them were in Colts gear. So one pair of tickets will be going to the person with the most Redskins-y pet at tomorrow’s walk. Below are some pictures of the dogs in Indy; if you can top these, you’ll be in the running.
