Since PI is infinite there is a possibility for there to be a 6 and a 9 sixty-nine times in a row. amirite?

It's not a possibility - there is. A number with eternally varied digits by definition contain every possible combination. The whole lord of the rings book series coded into digits are in there. Your social security number. Your mom's measurements. Etc. kinda cool.

In a similar note, check out the library of babel. It's a digital library that creates every combination of 1312000 characters in the English alphabet, any sentence you can think of that fits in that character count can be found there.

If Pi is infinite then technically it will repeat infinitely.

Not exactly in a row. Pi doesn't repeat.

When it's said that pi doesn't repeat it means that it doesn't repeat infinitely like the decimal representations of certain rational numbers (1/3 and so on). It doesn't mean that digits are never repeated in a row. In fact they will repeat. Any sequence of repeating digits will be found somewhere in pi.
