Commander Caught Cheating at Bingo

 

A scuffle broke out at a local bingo hall in Hopkinsville, KY when an old lady got fed up with a man constantly shouting “BINGO” without actually having stamped any of the numbers that were called out by the bingo caller. “He does this all the time, and I’m sick of it,” declared Doris Lizwatt, a citizen of Hopkinsville who’s been playing bingo for the last 50 years. “Some of us take this seriously, and that man comes in here and just makes a mockery of it. He doesn’t even stamp the numbers the caller is saying. He just grabs his dauber and starts smashing it all over the paper.” The man in question is none other than Brian Winksi, a Major General in the Army and the commander of the 101st Airborne Division and Fort Campbell. We were able to catch up with MG Winski and ask him why he even comes in if he doesn’t want to play the game correctly, and he stated, “it’s fun, I guess. I have so much fun making up numbers at work that I thought it would be fun to do it in my personal time too. It’s pretty funny watching everyone get worked up to be honest.” In the meantime, the General has been banned from the bingo hall until he can promise to play the game correctly.
