Maybe I'm way behind the times, or missed something, but is there some special significance to the number 7 in nicknames?

There are several here with "77" or "777" and I was just curious.

I've applied for a patent on 7X70...so you number freaks beware...

I have found that people who deal with the numberism have a tie/link with Evangelicals somewhere down the line....

Ah.  Interesting.  I was wondering if there was a band or other pop culture thing that had "77" or "777" in it that the nicknames were referring to.

Well, to quote the old Tootsie Pop(tm)  ads  "The world may never know."
