GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFMY)-- — How life changing is winning a million dollars that you almost trashed? A Greensboro couple can answer that for you.
James Strickland and Teresa McCallister are the lucky couple who won $1 million playing the Extreme Millions scratch-off game, but the good fortune almost didn't happen.
Strickland says he has a routine of throwing tickets that he didn't win onto his car's floorboard. He checks them again at the end of the week.
