Today I had an urge, an urge to write about the number 44. Weird aye? To overcome this urge and move on with my life, I figured I should blog 5 facts about the number 44.
5. Fragile but ‘Agile’
This beauty was piloted by Lt. Bert Lee Jr and was credited with 2 confirmed victories during WWII.
4. #44 has been retired
The number 44 is very famous within the ‘Football’ ranks at Syracuse University. A number of legends wore it, such as Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, Floyd Little and Rob Konrad. Unlike John, the number 44 was officially retired in 2005.
44 is the international dialling code for the greatest country in the world! hehe
2. 44’s a Happy Number
If you replace 44 with the sum of the squares of its digits and repeat the process, eventually the answer will equal 1. This makes the number 44 a Happy Number! John’s a happy guy, but I wonder if John is happy reading this today?
1. Happy Birthday
I remembered why I had the urge to write about the number 44, Happy Birthday John! I thought it was only fair that I shared some photos with our readers, courtesy of his beautiful wife.
John rocking his bi-focals! Like a fine Cabrales, he only gets better with age…
Cheers for all your help and support this year John you’re a bloody legend. Have a great day
