A 58-year-old man claims his lottery luck is tied to pop star Taylor Swift. UPI reports that Virginia man John Cabral he won a jackpot back in 2015, the same day that he helped out at a Taylor Swift AquaPalooza show on the Potomac. “She was the sweetest girl and we boated her out to the stage,” he says. “That was the night I won a pretty sizable Pick 3 prize.” Recently, Cabral won another, even bigger $33,054 jackpot, and says it was connected to Swift again. That time, he won two days after last month’s American Music Awards, where Swift picked up six awards, including Artist of the Year and Artist of the Decade. The winner says he plans to use the money for an extra-special family Christmas. As for Swift, Cabral says “Maybe she’ll write a song about me.”
