From a crossword solvers (L.A. Times puzzle) blog:

Subject of an annual March 14 celebration and of this puzzle, celebrated in its circled squares in both a literal and a numerical way : VALUE OF PI.  Celebrated on 3.14 because those are the first significant numbers contained in Pi (3.1415926...)

But wait! There's more!  If you look at the circles (going from left to right in the puzzle), it is not only the letters you should notice, but their associated numbers:


3.  14   15   9   26
p.....i.....d....a....y

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Good Lep Luck in the Pick 5 games with this everyone.

                It's not that often tyou see numbers other than Roman numerals even mentioned in a crossword and I just figured these fit that "Numbers that must be played" category!
