(Newser) – An Iowa couple who won a $202 million Powerball jackpot in September is giving $3 million to the local high school to build a new football stadium. One catch: the visitors' locker room must be pink, reports the Des Moines Register. “I was sort of half joking and half not I suppose, but they said they’d do it,” Mary Lohse tells the newspaper. The University of Iowa famously has a similar locker room—messing with opponents' heads is the main goal— and Lohse is a fan. Also, her son plays for the high school team.

oh, isn't it cute that they can't make a charitable contribution without turning it into a petty little stunt? Proof that money can't buy class. Booooooo.
