Triskaidekaphobia refers to the irrational fear of the number 13. There are multiple theories as to why the number 13 came to be regarded as so unlucky, but luckily for us GM is a Colgate University grad. And the number 13 is considered lucky by Colgate since the school was founded by 13 men with 13 dollars and 13 prayers. And that’s all good news for today since today is the 13 anniversary of the beginning of the Georgetown Metropolitan. (And it’s the 13th, to boot!)
GM started this website way back when because he found himself researching the history of Georgetown and the current events affecting it and felt he had to share. Since that first post, GM has published 8,000 articles. GM never thought this little project he started in the winter of 2008 would get old enough to get pimples and braces. But here we are.
So join GM in shedding your triskaidekaphobia and ring in another year!
