The last time I played in a "league" I was usually an odd "twenty" number... 25 and 27 most of the time... playing defense because I was bigger than everyone at that point in time. One game I took the 32 number because I just wanted to wear it... "no assigned numbers" scored a goal that game as a Defensemen and the next game too.
SOOOOOOOOOOO.... 32 is my first choice... I picked 86 for softball in Korea and was as clutch as ever!!! then 10, 12, 14, 19.... or any mathematical combo of any said numbers for flexablility.
Dad showed me some clips of Salming when I was a kid and I took to the guy, wore 21 since then. It's kind of obscure as far as Defensive numbers are concerned so I felt a little cooler then other kids.
Just a random question, I've just started with another team and I need to choose my Jersey number but my usual one has already been taken (#10)
How did you guys/gals choose yours?
my dads number growing up was number 11 - it was taken on my first team so i just doubled it and got 22. years later i learned that it was my grandfathers racecar number, so all in all my number actually has meaning behind it
Interesting story (to me anyway): My son was always #9 until he made a higher level team a couple of years ago. #9 was taken by the head coaches son. After much debate he chose the random number 28. He could not give any reason; it wasn't his favorite number, it wasn't his favorite player… nothing. He picked it out of the air.
Fast forward to Christmas of that season. My wife bought me the DVD of "Miracle as a present. While watching it we noticed that there was a #28 on the US team from 1980. Further, he was a right wing like my son. Strange but the really odd part? They share the same last name: Harrington.
my first number (#77) was for Ray Bourque and my second (#19) was for Joe Sakic. When I started playing club, someone already had 19 and so I wanted to do something a bit different and went with #0. I used that up until I moved to another city wherein the organization I was with only let players use 1-30. I settled on #26 after having used it the one season I played football. #23, #27 & #28 have all been acceptable replacements for #26.
