I just got new Ontario plates for my car. The lady handed them to me and upon quick glance, I noticed they ended with the numbers ‘773’.
73 is a number that always seems to come up in my life. It’s the year I was born. It’s the number that happen to be on the side of the truck Shawn, Ron, and I raced. My condo in Regina will be 773 square feet and on and on it goes. 73 is a big deal to me.
So naturally I am delighted with my new plates. Plates. Plural. That’s what the ‘s’ there means. I have to put two plates on my car. Bit of a problem. I have no front bracket on my car, and I don’t like the way a front bracket would look anyway. I’ll just go with one until someone tells me to do something different.
I also got around to publishing my book today. I compiled it in December, but didn’t get around to finishing the job until today. Another way to spend my CBC money.
I also got an email from TSN today. They want to talk. Mostly they want to tell me to take ‘Highwaymen’ to CTV. As a sports broadcaster, they can’t guarantee a regular spot for a scripted series. Being on at a regular time is important to a show’s success.
I’m not surprised to hear this, nor am I disappointed. I see it as another step. TSN and CTV are sister companies and I’m hoping TSN can open a back door for me. There are other ways they can help too. The possibilities and opportunities are not few. I just want to get in a room with ‘em and keep the conversation alive.
73 times is the charm.
