Pythagoras and NASCAR

Pythagoras was not just an ancient mathematician and philosopher but also the founder of the religious movement called Pythagoreanism. They were very big into number mysticism including such ideas that odd numbers were masculine and even numbers were feminine.

After reading about that my first thought was about NASCAR and how Dale Earnhardt was number 3 (an odd number) and how Jeff Gordon is number 24 (an even number). The Intimidator (odd number) versus the Rainbow Warrior (even number).

Just sayin'. Maybe Pythagoras was on to something?
