74 is one of my favorite numbers, so when I hit that figure for followers I wanted to stop and celebrate:
…But why is 74, of all numbers, a favorite number? I won’t leave you in suspense. As a sophomore in high school, I earned a spot on the varsity football team and was given that fateful number. Turns out, it was also my father’s football number in high school. My baseball coach cemented the numerical love affair when he indulged my eccentric personality and special ordered 74 for me to wear on the diamond. It was an oddity every PA announcer commented on.
