Rikki Don’t Lose That Number.
- 200,000 – that number was hit last week. Nothing much else to say other than let us have hope for a vaccine.
- 95 – I never wish to rush my life along but with that said that is the number of days left until the first day of 2021.
- 2- the number of wins Atlanta United has in their last eleven games. A combination of factors including scheduling, the player pool changes and a key injury…but still disconcerting. The disrespect with Orlando City has come to a dead stop for good reasons.
- 143 – the combined ages of the United States’ two leading experts who are combating the pandemic. Thankfully.
- 40 – he is not mentioned as often as Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, Barry Sanders and Walter Payton, but Gayle Sayers was in a class of his own and many years ahead of his time. RIP #40, Gayle Sayers.
- 16,000 – the number of restaurants that shut down during the pandemic – and are now closed permanently.
- 20 – The number of division titles won by the Atlanta Braves.
- 80 – as in feet and the height of a massive wave a surfer took on off the coast of Portugal. No, no, and no. She is amazing.
- 55 – the miles between Orlando and New Smyrna Beach. A very fun beach town.
- 13- the number of leading companies doing what they can to get a Covid-19 vaccine developed and approved. Safety and efficacy are part of this equation.
- 1 – the number of lungs now functioning for Los Angeles Charger quarterback Tyrod Tyler. It seems the team doctor, in an effort to provide Tyler with a pain killer in the rib area, accidently punctured a lung. Say what?
- 420 – maybe we should celebrate that day every day?
- 7 – In the Old Testament the world was created in six days and God rested on the seventh, creating the basis of the seven-day-week…. and Sunday Funday.
- 0 – Numbers can be statistically significant and there is no more important number right now than “Down To Zero” – a great piece from an artist my brother turned me onto a long time ago. Let’s get Covid-19 down to zero.
In a world of some negative vibes, here is a feel-good story that has nothing to do with numbers…except one six-year old child with autism who went missing in the woods behind his home in London, Ontario. The combination of ground forces with night vision goggles and a helicopter equipped with both heat seeking and laser technology was able to locate the child. This is a bit of shining light in the world of the weird right now. Kudos to all law enforcement involved with bringing this child back to his family.
Adios, pay it forward, stay safe and have a Sunday Funday!!
