The Number 13


Back in my beloved country, many people believed that number 13 is an unlucky number. Worst, belief goes that if a day 13 of the month falls on Friday it could mean disaster to lives of many people. Way back in high school, one of my teachers died on her way to the city in a car accident on the night of Friday the 13th. Yes, only God knows what lies ahead for us but sometimes things happens in coincidence that's why people tend to believe in many superstitious beliefs.

However, for Eagles and Bengals, 13 was a lucky number. During one of the NFL games on Sunday, neither of the two teams win or loss since they end up the game with a score of 13-13. Yes, they could have play overtime but since NFL has its distinctive rule when it comes to time so the game ended having no one win nor loss.

The above instances pretty show that one rule doesn't apply to all situations and times; there is always an exception...
