If you were a child of the 70's(which only a few of us are), Sesame Street was one of the only kids programs we had(back in my day, we didn't have 15 channels for kids!..etc..etc grumpy old man) Even if you are a young whipper snapper in your 30's you are probably familar with the show. Every show was "brought to you" by a letter and a number(I wish I would have thought of this when the Cubs losing streak was at like, 3)

LOSING STREAK= THE NUMBER 11!

1. One of my favorite Cubs of the 70's, Ivan DeJesus wore number 11!

2. SPINAL TAP- The iconic faux heavy metal band was quite proud of the fact that all of their amps went up to 11..."Why not just make 10 a little louder and have 10 be the highest? (five second pause) "These go to 11.." genius

3.FAMOUS 11'S (taken from my cool Best By Number book)- Isiah Thomas(yuck), Luis Aparicio, Drew Bledsoe, Elvin Hayes, Mark Messier, Carl Hubbell, Phil Simms, Danny White, Manny Mota

4. OCEAN'S 11- I like this movie, whenever it's on HBO, I can't help but watch...no need for the Julia Roberts junk, but there are some cool characters and it makes me want to gamble.

5. FOOTBALL- America's favorite concussion causing sport is played 11 on 11. 22 men in a physical barbaric battle, where only a handful of men will have full use of their brains and bodies past the age of 40...and most of their money will be gone too.

Ha, Sesame Street and the #12?!? All I can think of is that STUPID jingle.

If you watched the show growing up, you know what it is.
making music and more since 1985
