Happy Pi Day!

Today is the day to celebrate mathematics.   Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter 

Spotty Chop's school had the high school honors students come hang out/and do fun math things yesterday. Spotty Chop now knows Pi as 3.14159265

We woke up this morning at 6 am to make it to Burlington for an 8:10 am game. After the game (they lost 1-0, but it was a really close & great game - Timmy was checked into the boards for the first time, I thought Boy Toy was going to leap onto the ice and start beating the crap out of the refs as they somehow didn't see it. At Spotty's age there is absolutely no checking, funny how some teams don't play that way. I say this because 5 other kids were checked into the boards and it was only called once ). Someone said "happy Pi" day. Someone else said "what's Pi?" and Spotty said "3.14159265". One of the dad's said sarcastically "that'll impress the girls". To which I smiled, gave the raised eyebrow of "don't make me kick your ass"  and said "it will impress the right girls." The mother's of the girl's on the team gave the "nod of damn straight" to which sarcastic dad said "touche".
