Tennesseans John and Lisa Robinson came forward on Friday's episode of The Today Show to claim they have a winning ticket for the largest Powerball jackpot in history. Three winning tickets were sold in Tennessee, California, and Florida.

Tennessee lottery officials have not yet confirmed the ticket, and Tennessee law requires winners to come forward with the winning ticket and identification in order to claim their prize. So instead of doing that, they physically brought the ticket to New York City, a calm, peaceful metropolis where nothing goes wrong and no one ever gets robbed. This ignores all advice that winners should lay low and avoid the press, because winning a huge lottery can be a curse.
