California - What do popsicles and Powerball have in common? Not much, besides the same number of letters. But for John "Jack" Long, the two will forever be intertwined. You see, Long was picking up his favorite sweet treat in Fontana, when he decided to test his luck and won $60 million.

"I hadn't bought (lottery tickets) in a while, and I was at the store buying my popsicles and I go, 'Oh hell, let me get some of these before I get out of here,'" Long explained. "I didn't ask or care how much it (the jackpot) was, just bought them on a whim."
