After he’d been to the races, Joe met his friend Bill. Joe said, “You want to hear one of the most amazing things that ever happened? Tell me, what's the date today?" "July seventh". "Right.

"Let me guess", Bill interrupted. "You put everything you had on number seven in the seventh race?" "Right". "And he won?" "No. He got seventh!"
