It's really not that lucky of a number. Think gambling. In poker a 7 is one half of the "worst hand" you can have, 2-7. Craps, sure 7 is great on the first roll, but after that 7's (which has the highest probability of coming up on a 2 die roll) bust you up like the bookie you owe money to. Why do you owe money to him, because he gives out 7 point spreads because. The movie Se7en, that didn't work out well for anyone (What's in the boooooox?). Then there's all that freaky stuff like 7 wonders of the world, 7 continents (don't know how that's freaky, but it is), 7 spots on a lady bug. It goes on and on. Now though, 7 is magic. It's the number the Sox need to sure up their spot in the playoffs. Sure it's the wild card, but I've harped on plenty about how the WC is going to work out just fine.
Pats lost. Steve is going to be mad. I think I'm going to avoid him all day. Of course putting this up will not help things.
