Lottery winners will fund football stadium only if visitors locker room is pink

Couple agrees to $3 million donation as long as visiting teams are made to feel gay

Some people become incredibly generous when they win the lottery, and others become miserly. Some become spend-thrifts and some still save every penny. Then you have the case of Brian and Mary Lohse, who became insensitive jerks.

In all fairness, it's possible they were insensitive jerks before and the $200 million Powerball jackpot they won in September is simply giving them a megaphone for their jerk-i-ness. Either way, the couple has agreed to donate $3 million of their winnings to their son's school on one condition: The visitors locker room must be painted pink.

"I was sort of half joking and half not, I suppose, but they said they'd do it," Mary Lohse said of her scheme, inspired by the University of Iowa visitor's locker room at Kinnick Stadium, which is also painted pink.

"It's supposed to put them in a certain soft frame of mind," Mary Lohsesaid. "It will certainly give all the players something to talk about."

That's Iowa-speak for, "I wasn't joking one bit, and I hope those other teams feel like a bunch of fags when they visit us."

Of course, the couple's other stipulation was that the stadium be completed before the 2014 season so their son can play there his senior season.

The Lohses also donated to their church. I'm shocked.
