Top 10 reasons Streetplay didn't lose millions of bucks in 1999

10: Streetplay staff refuses salary, continues working for beer and food.

9: Home Depot "everyday low price" on sticks, string, and chalk reduced material cost for our favorite games.

We didn't give this away.

8: We couldnít decide between Learjet and 120-foot yacht as grand prize for Streetplay big contest, so we settled on 50 bucks.

7: Regis Philbin nixed offer to be Streetplay spokesman to do "Millionaire" gig (and Shatner was busy with a lounge act).

6: Got big refund from ABC: Super Bowl didnít go into overtime, so our commercial didnít air.

5: Bill Gates never played stickball and therefore did not try to wipe us out with unfair business practices.

4: Bill and Hillary closed on Chappaqua estate we were considering as our global headquarters before we got mortgage approval.

3: Ken Griffey Jr. turned down our stickball team offer, signed with Cincinnati Reds instead.

2: We were so busy playing ball, we forgot to ask the venture capitalists for money!

1: CEOís wife nixed mortgaging the house for contest cash.
