Fun with the number 10

In recognition of my back-to-back 10 mile runs and Katrina's 10th Half Marathon in 10 days, I figured I would have a little fun and come up with a list of things that never made it to 10:

1. Star Wars — 6 movies
There were the original trilogy (films 4-6) and the prequel trilogy (1-3) and you could event try to count the Holiday Special, but at most that would give you 7.

2. Michael Jordan — 6 championship rings
His Airness went three-peat twice with a two year hiatus playing baseball after the loss of his father.

3. Nirvana — 6 years
They recorded together for 6 years between 1988-1994 ending with the untimely death of lead singer Kurt Cobain from a self-inflicted gun shot wound.

4. Harry Potter— 7 books
There are a total 7 books to date and we can most likely rely on a seventh film (currently at 6).

5. Freddy Kruger — 8 movies
There were eight movies made between 1984 and 2003 (including Freddy vs. Jason). Note: They are remaking the original Nightmare starring Jackie Earle Haley.

6. George Foreman — 76-5
The man with his name on the grill only lost 5 fights between 1969 and 1997, losing his first fight to Muhammad Ali at the "Rumble in the Jungle." Overall he won 76 fights; with 68 by way of knock out.

7. The Tim Burton produced film: 9

8. Angelina Jolie — 6 children
Brad and Angelina have six children: Maddox , Zahara, Pax, Shiloh and their new set of twins; Knox Leon and Vivienne.

9. This list.
