Default and don't get me started on Warren Spahn

This was the 21st day of the month

in the 21st week

of the 21st year

in the 21st Century


The Braves score 20 runs tonight, the Pirates 1 for a total of 21

This was the Braves' 21st victory of the season.


3 starting Braves infielders combined for 4 home runs, for a combined season total of ...21

2 starting Braves outfielders hit homers bringing their combined season total to ...21

An eerie coincidence I think! As a side note, whenever I hear or see Spahn's name, I think of his wind up, along with the poem:

First we'll use Spahn
then we'll use Sain
Then an off day
followed by rain
Back will come Spahn
followed by Sain
And followed
we hope
by two days of rain.

They never could get Burdette and Buhl in there.

In Underworld which of course starts with the Thomson homer, Don Delillo does a riff on the number 13 (Branca's jersey) that's something like that but I can't remember the details other than that the Dodgers blew a 13 game lead, the date 10/3 added to 13, and there was more.
