Aaron Craft shows off special skill to celebrate Pi Day (VIDEO)

Today, in case you forgot, is Pi Day, celebrated every March 14, and here to help us celebrate is Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft, who, strangely, can rattle off all 63 numbers.  That's because the Academic All-American is probably smarter than a lot of people.

Not to be confused with some pronunciations of P. Diddy, Pi Day is when math geeks around the country gather in schools, private groups and libraries to celebrate the Greek number pi, approximately 3.14. That's why March 14 — 3-14 — is Pi Day. Get it?

Anyway, here's Aaron:

A quick math refresher: Pi is defined as the distance around a perfect circle, or the circumference, divided by the distance across it, or the diameter. It is also involved in calculating the area of a circle, the volume of a sphere, and many other mathematical formulas you might need in the sciences— or everyday world.

Oh yeah, Albert Einstein was born on this day too.
