People will do anything to win a fishing tournament or a boat. I think he got more than he bargained for, some people are unbelievable. Must be dumb criminal week or something, lol. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36528842/ns/us_news/

I suppose that there are cheaters in every game. But wow, this is taking it to a new kind of extreme. I can see that everyone wants to win and it definitely was a great prize to win. However, if you need to cheat in order to win, then it isn't worth it for anyone in my honest opinion. I have to admit that I am happy to hear that the man was prosecuted for his cheating in the tournament and I hope that going forward there are more people that are prosecuted for their cheating in games and sports.
