Lots of 3.14's, pies in Wisconsin to mark National Pi Day

MILWAUKEE - March 14th brings the celebration of National Pi Day.

Pi refers to the circumference of a circle being, approximately, 3.14 times its diameter.

Many of us who are non-math heads, however, have other things we can mark on National Pi Day, some with local flavor.

People who want to get out and exercise on this cold day could take a 3.14 mile bike ride in Bay View.

They can read up on the most recent Wisconsin statute 3.14, which defines Wisconsin's 4th congressional district.

People can celebrate pi at the Discovery World Museum.

Or, even though this isn't National Pie Day (which happened in January), they can enjoy their favorite pie at local establishments like Honey Pie, Maxie's Southern Comfort or Cafe Lulu.

But of course, there have been two legendary pie-in-the-face moments in Wisconsin sports in the last year which we can mark.

One involves Brewers outfielder Norichika Aoki and his game-winning home run back in June.

The other: the Packers' all-world signal-caller, Aaron Rodgers.

Packers fans can also celebrate two historical players who have their numbers retired: Tony Canadeo and Don Hutson.
