Mike Slade’s lucky day

I’m not talking about today’s sale of Rivals.com, an online sports service that the Seattle venture capitalist advised before it crashed in the downturn.

No, I’m talking about July 7, 2007, the upcoming date that has numerologists and the superstitious in a tizzy.

There’s a rush of nuptials planned that day since it’s supposed to be lucky — for everyone but those trying to find an available hotel room or party venue.

But Slade beat the rush and rented the Showbox concert hall on 7-7-7, which happens to be his 50th birthday.
