每日英語跟讀 Ep.K075: About the US - Man wins $2M after mistakenly buying extra lottery ticket

A detroit-area man who accidentally bought an extra lottery ticket has won two $1 million jackpots.

(美國)底特律地區一名男子意外多買一張彩券,贏得2組各100萬美元的頭獎。

Samir Mazahem, 56, of Dearborn Heights said he was saving numbers on a lottery app after buying a $2 ticket for the Mega Millions game. He then realized that he had purchased a second ticket with the same numbers.

住在迪爾伯恩海茨的56歲薩米爾.馬札海姆說,他在「超級百萬樂透」的應用程式上,花了2美元買了1張彩券,並把號碼儲存下來後,發現自己竟用同樣的號碼買了2張彩券。

"I was a little bummed but didn’t think much about it," Mazahem said. Until he recently logged onto the app and found he had two $1 million winners.

馬札海姆說:「我有點氣惱,但沒有多想。」直到最近登入應用程式,他才發現自己贏了2張各100萬美元的大獎。

"I couldn’t believe it was real," he said. "It took several days for the reality to set in." He plans to buy a new house and save the rest after claiming his prize.

他說:「我不敢相信這是真的,過了好幾天才有真實感。」他領獎後打算買新房子,並把剩餘的錢存下來。

The Super Bowl had 30,000 cardboard fans 超級盃擺了3萬個球迷人型立牌

Super Bowl LV kicked off between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida looked full with the help of some fake fans.

第55屆超級盃在坦帕灣海盜隊與堪薩斯酋長隊的對決中揭開序幕,佛羅里達州坦帕灣的詹姆斯球場在一些假球迷幫助下,看起來客滿。

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the NFL had approximately 25,000 in the stadium for the 55th Super Bowl, far fewer than the 70,000 fans that attended the big game the last time it was held in Tampa.

由於疫情持續,美國國家美式足球聯盟(NFL)在第55屆超級盃體育場大約有2萬5000名觀眾,遠遠少於這場大型賽事上次在坦帕舉行的7萬名球迷。

To make up the difference, the NFL produced 30,000 cardboard cutouts of fans to fill most of the remaining seats.

為了弭補差額,NFL製作3萬個球迷人型立牌,來填補剩餘的大部分座位。

Unlike other sporting events where the cardboard cutouts are all bunch together in some areas of the stadium that receive the most TV coverage, the fake Super Bowl fans are spread out to keep the real fans socially distant.

這些超級盃的假球迷被分散開來,以讓現場真球迷保持社交距離。而在一些其他體育賽場上,人型立牌都聚集在一些電視轉播較集中的區域。

The NFL charged fans $100 for each cardboard cutout at the game. That’s a cool $3 million in revenue to make up for some of the lost ticket and concession sales.

NFL在比賽中向球迷收取每個人型立牌100美元的費用,那是不錯的300萬美元收入,可以彌補一些門票和特許銷售的損失。
