It’s Square Root Day!


There is a close friend of mine who reads Packergeeks almost everyday (though curiously, he never comments on the site). Anyway, my guess is that he’s pretty excited today because today is the math holiday called Square Root Day (3/3/09). Read here for more on Square Root Day. While we here at Packergeeks are definitely geekish with our Packer madness, we can’t touch this kind of math geekiness. (To think, someone somewhere this morning got up with a slightly swifter step and extra positive outlook because today is Square Root Day…it really makes you think about how we’re all different, in some cases very different.)

Anyway, this close friend of mine, when we were young, obnoxious teens, once yelled for many to hear “I love math”. Girls were even present. Imagine a kid saying this to other teens. It went over like Eleanor Roosevelt on a fashion runway. Sure, he did eventually get his PhD by age 26-27 and became a successful, tenured professor at a high quality University by his early 30s – but still, I’m not sure anything justifies a public exclamation like “I love math” in front of teen cohorts.

Anyway, anonymous Packergeek friend, daily -reader-no-commenter, are you celebrating Square Root Day?

    Every other NFL fan group is anxiously watching the FA wire. We are celebrating Square Root Day. Ah, the joys of having TT as the GM.

    Admit it. This post is just an effort to get that guy to actually post a comment. 🙂

    For me, the joy of TT as GM is that none of the now overpaid free agents are on the Packers roster.

    3/3 would be 3 to the third power. It wouldn’t equal 9, 3/3 is 27.

  4. Richard Says:

    Yesterday was square root day. 3/2/09 = 3 to the 2nd power = 9

  5. Joe Says:

    Lets all celebrate by referring to TT and MM as T-squared and M-squared.

    3×3=9. the square root of 9 is 3.

    I believe that public declaration was before I started drinking, so I guess I can’t blame the booze. And while I could use the excuse that I made that declaration a long time ago, I gotta admit…I still love the stuff.

    Anyway, now that Andy (and I see eventually Steve) goaded me into finally posting to my favorite website (you may say that I’m positively biased because Andy and I have been close friends since diapers, but I’m also negatively biased because Steve used to, still does, and always will pull my hair – I say that out loud every time I see him on TV – so I’m really an objective reader and Packer fan), I get to type what I’ve always wanted to – long time reader, first time poster.
