Hmm 81? Really?! How is 81, some random number, a milestone? For me, it is in my name. It is not just a random internet name that stuck with me... When I was a kid and I played city league baseball (I love playing baseball...but that is a different story), my number, for many years, was 9. It just was for many years in the youth years. Then, I move up to some bigger competition baseball but now...the all-star of the team, already had the number nine... I was upset with this because I felt comfortable...lucky even...call me superstitious I suppose. What was I to do? One day, I had some home work in math and it donned on me..."8+1=9...! 81...81 should be my new number!!!" I tell my coach, "sir, I'd like to have the number 81 this year." He looked at me and thought I was odd as this is not a normal number for baseball. That year, I hit my first home run...let alone, many home runs, steals and double plays from the outfield to home. Yeah...81 is my new number. Today, I didn't even realize but with my last Deviant Art submission, I have reached 81 deviations total. Thanks to everyone for all the views, favorite and watch adds. Here's to 81 more and 81 more times after that!
