    • Trivia: Joey wants to pool all the winnings ($300 million) and buy the NY Knicks. According to Forbes, $300 million was the original purchase price of the Knicks in 1997. At the time this program aired (April 2003), the team would have been worth considerably more. As of January 2016, the value of the team is listed by Forbes as $3 billion.
      Of course, Joey's plan is all based on the assumption that if they won, they'd receive $300 million in cash, but if they took a lump-sum payment, after taxes, they'd end up with less than half that. Naturally, you don't want to consider such pedestrian details when you're dreaming.
