The North American lottery system is a $70 billion-a-year business, an industry bigger than movie tickets, music, and porn combined

March 29, 2002 Washington Post article by Boswell-

“Once, in Cuba , a quadruple play decided the island championship. Bases loaded, bottom of the ninth, home team one run behind. Liner to right in the gap. On instinct, the runners go. Diving catch. Throws back to second, then first for a triple play. But the runner on third has tagged in the meantime to score and tie the game. Defensive team appeals that the runner at third left too soon. Appeal upheld. “Fourth” out. Run denied. Game over.”

Technically, the appeal on the runner at third replaced the previously ruled third out, but it is a first hand account of a ‘four out inning’.

;-D

From that awful bus accident:

NEW YORK — Passengers and witnesses to a horrific New York City crash that sheared the top off a bus and killed 14 people told investigators that the driver's account of getting clipped by a tractor-trailer didn't match up to what they felt and saw before the vehicle slid off the road and into a sign pole.

Driver Ophadell Williams had told police that his World Wide Tours bus was hit just as it crossed the New York City line early Saturday on a trip from the Mohegan Sun casino in in Connecticut.
But passengers said Williams had already swerved at times to the right for no reason before the accident, a law-enforcement official said Sunday. The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the probe and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Sad to think this is looking more and more to have happened because of a reckless bus driver. :-/
