33 And Counting

Friday evening we celebrated my youngest daughter Reagan turning 33 years old.  As we were talking about 33, Brady noted that it reminded him of Eddie Murray.  (I got to admit that Eddie was also my first thought too when the subject of 33 came up.)

Eddie was always known as Steady Eddie because he maintained an even keel approach to things.  From Eddie, I learned one of my Life Philosophies as in - don't get too high when things are going good and don't get too low when they aren't.

As we discussed 33, Shea then mentioned Scottie Pippen, whom I had forgotten also wore that number. 

All of this talk of 33 later led me to do a Google search where I learned that 33 is a very happening number in many areas.  In the world of sports for instance, 33 has had some great ones wearing it:  Lew Alcindor/Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird, Tony Dorsett, and Patrick Ewing (click here.)  (Some hockey dude named Patrick Roy also wore 33 but not being a big hockey fan, I don't know much about him (click here.))

In addition to several famous athletes wearing the number, I also found that 33 Numerology-wise is considered a Master Number (click here.)  Also, in Math, Science and Religious matters, 33 plays several key roles (click here and scroll down.)

And in a full circle kind of way, as Reagan cut her birthday cake Friday, I became nostalgic watching her do so, because it suddenly dawned on me that when she appeared in 1984, I was 33 years old.  May have to play Numero 333 in today's Lotto.
