Just how many points DO you have??

So, I was selling entries into a bracketed knockout at a small, local regional. People wishing to buy into the knockout must fill out a ticket that includes the total number of masterpoints for the team. An elderly woman comes up and hands me a ticket with the number 90210* for her masterpoint total. Now, I recognize most of the big players, and I didn't know her, so I asked her, "Are you sure you have this many points?" thinking that maybe she put an extra zero on the end. She nodded, so I shrugged and took the entry.

She left and started to walk away, and then came back exclaiming, "Wait! No, that's my zip code!"

*number changed to protect the guilty (namely, me) ;)
