Danny Willett Masters Champion =333. Thomas and the Great Railway Show =333. Wardell Stephen Steph Curry II =333. This NBA season opened on the 333rd anniversary of Philadelphia. In the universe of ‘Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends’ =303, there’s a backhoe called Jack – like the Amtrak train hoax in Chester =33, that hit a Backhoe =89, the day before the college basketball final. Danny Willett’s caddy wore #89 – just like Jack Nicklaus’s son/caddy wore #89 in Jack’s historic sixth win in ’86 at the 50th Masters. Jack =150. Golden State =50. And according to the Torah, we’re currently in the year of the Golden Jubilee.
- Nicklaus goes by the nickname The Golden Bear and Thomas the Tank Engine toy trains were produced by ‘Golden Bear Toys’ =162. Steph Curry =1026. Steph =308. Thomas the Tank Engine =83. Golden Bear =83/47. Thomas the Tank =47 (first season of the NBA was ’47).
- Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends =122. Golden State =122/41. Talking James =122/41, the name of the James train toy (sounds like Tall King James…) There’s also a golden yellow train called Stephen the Rocket. The Rocket =51. Curry =510. Cleveland =51, the city that hasn’t won a championship in 51 years. Cleveland Cavs =51.
In the show, Stephen’s builder is a chap called “Robert Stephenson” =87/213. Stephen =87 and was built 187 years ago. Kobe’s nickname ‘The Black Mamba’ =213, connected to Lupercalia on 2/13 and the 213 days between Kobe’s final 60-point game and the death of Moses ‘Malone’ =60. There’s an episode in the 19th season where Stephen the Rocket rescues passengers from a collapsing suspension bridge in season 19 of the TV series. With all this golden theme, that remind you of anything? Golden Gate =90. Golden State Warriors =90.
Back to the Masters, Jordan Spieth was the first defending champion to lead after Day 1 since Nicklaus, 66 years earlier and they both shot 66’s (33-33). Thirty-Three =66. Yet instead of back-to-back titles, Spieth went back-to-back into the drink on #12, a hole called Golden Bell. The course summary on Augusta.com even uses the word Bear to describe the hole. And get this, before it was Golden Bell it was called ‘Three Pines’ =402. Curry ended the season with a record-smashing 402 three-pointers. Also, the water trap is called ‘Raes Creek’ =85. Curry =85.
- Golden Bell =173. Golden Bell at Augusta =73. Ritual Sacrifice =73. Stephen Curry =73. The Warriors =73. Warriors Back-t0-Back =73. Steph & Spieth =73 (notice there’s only an i’s difference between Spieth and Steph). Thomas & Friends King of the Railway =173.
- If Cavs win the Finals they’ll have 73 total wins; if Warriors win they’ll have 89.
- Warriors beat the Bulls record to end the season 73-9. The 131st prime is 739, Championship =131. Moses Malone =131. Warriors got their 73rd win against the ‘Grizzlies’ =131, scoring 125 points. Warriors Win Back-to-Back Championships =125/314. The last time they scored 125 points was on 3/14, Curry’s birthday and the day of the Kansas train derailment. That’s 2 months 19 days before The Finals: Back-to-Back Championships =219. The first time Warriors scored 125 points this season was against the Bulls with a combined score of 219.
FUN FACT: Willett was the first Englishman to win the Masters since Nick Faldo in 1996, Kobe Bryant’s first year in the NBA. From Kobe’s first game (11/3) (Kobe Bryant =113) to his last game is a span of 1014 weeks 3 days (1143). From Faldo’s win to Willett’s is 1043 weeks. NICK FALDO =143, in Jewish Gematria. And if we spell out ‘One Hundred Forty-Three’ =113, full-circle. Steph Curry Golden State =113.
Another confirmation of British connections to American pro sports, perhaps tributes to ‘King James and the Cavaliers’ =231/132. Cleveland Cavs =123.
