MegaMillions lottery co-winner Ed Nabors holds up a pillow with the words "gone fishing" embroidered on it, as his sister, Becky Dunlap, and brother- in- law David Dunlap hold his before-tax check during a news conference at the Georgia Lottery office, Wednesday, March 7, 2007, in Atlanta. The truck driver from north Georgia claimed half of the record $390 million (297 million Euros) Mega Millions jackpot, the richest lottery prize in U.S. history at the time. "I'm going to do a lot of fishing," Nabors said when asked what he planned to do with the money.
