New Math


I was not a math major, so I could be wrong. But it seems some of the following could be a bit off. Tony Blair said, “The single most important two things we can do are . . .”

Tennis legend Pat Cash described player Lleyton Hewitt: “His two greatest strengths are his legs, his speed, his agility, and his competitiveness.”

Kevin Keegan announced a soccer game. He said, “Three things can happen: Chile can win or they can lose.”

Jerry Coleman said of a baseball hitter, “That is his 19th homer. One more, and he will hit double figures.”

Larry Bowa said, “We talked five times. He called me twice and I called him twice.”

Running back George Rogers said, “I will gain 1,500 yards or 2,000 yards, whichever comes first.”

And a game show host asked the contestant to name a prime number between 10 and 20. The response was “seven.”

But here’s another crazy mathematical fact. One plus one equals a majority. That works, if the “one plus one” are you and God.

The apostle John said, “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).
