When a 37 year-old player dominates an NBA Conference Final game with as much class and skill as Tim Duncan did in Game 3 vs. the Memphis Grizzlies, one has to wonder…
How is it possible?
It seems so unbelievable, that it made me wonder what other strange facts might surround the number 37. Here’s a list with love, from the Internet.
- SPAM was invented in 1937
- There have been 37 as-of-yet unidentified radio signals received from outer space
- “Normal” human body temperature is 37 degrees Celsius
- William Shakespeare wrote 37 plays in his lifetime
- The human hand is moved by 37 skeletal muscles
- The Hindenburg took 37 seconds to burn (coincidentally, in 1937)
- 37 seconds elapsed between the sighting of the iceberg and its collision with the Titanic
- Highway I-37 is located in Texas, and it stretches from Corpus Christi to San Antonio
And finally, Tim Duncan is still really good at basketball… at age 37.
