Pattern? Coincidence? Or Could 7 Be Steelers Lucky Number?

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Nervous Steelers fans might be able to find some comfort in the number seven.

When it all breaks down, that digit might just be a magic number for Pittsburgh’s beloved black and gold football team!

Last weekend, No. 7 Ben Roethlisberger led his team over the Baltimore Ravens for the seventh time, by a seven point margin, in a career that spans seven years.

His team now goes for their all-time seventh home victory against the New York Jets, which would be the next to last step on the stairway to seven Super Bowl titles.

Is there a pattern here? Maybe coincidence? Or does lucky seven have a deeper meaning?

“It really is a number that indicates a lot about perfection,” said LaVerne Hotep, a numerologist.

She has the charts to prove it. She also says that it’s a biblical number.

“After we’ve done all the work necessary to get something done, then in seven you perfect it; so that when it’s done, then you can rest,” says Hotep.

While cradling a Super Bowl trophy, perhaps?

The Turtle Creek numerologist – who is also a teacher, radio broadcaster and drummer in a band – says double sevens equal very high energy.

So how about this… Art Rooney founded the Steelers in 1933, which makes this the organization’s 77th season.

“It indicates power and glory,” says Hotep of the double sevens. “It’s an energy that says you rise above obstacles.”

So, bottom line… the games in the bag, right?

But Hotep says, “I’m not making predictions. I’m just telling what the 77 indicates.”

Well, this we do know. Seven beats six – any time!

    after watching the steeler/ jet game i looked at the final score and noticed that if you tally up the score it would be 43 and if you added those two it would be the #7.

    I love Steeler fans,being from Tampa, they never caused problems are gracious in all respects.Maybe it’s because they come from a true working class society that promotes true fairness thru hard work and a team effort, which is also shown on the field.It seems they work as a collective, instead of a few stars in key positions.Good luck Steelers,you really don’t need it.P.S. when you guy’s sack the QB please help him, up slap him on his ass, and say good try!

    The Steelers represent the marker of history past and of things to come. The seven means the world is about to change, and Pittsburgh is going to declare it unknowingly to themselves.
