On that same tangent...

Mike Commodore wore #64....

Commodore was petitioned to wear #64, but never did.

This is a bit of a tangent (to "amusingly appropriate numbers), but how about Jordin Tootoo wearing 22

Or Joseph Forte wearing number Forty

I do not understand what is weird about the numbers 22 and 40.

You serious, Clark?

Here's as good a place as any to remind everyone of the (apocryphal?) story that, once the NHL moved to computerized records, it couldn't figure out how to make "0" or "00" work in its system. So it banned the numbers.

Three-digit numbers (1nn) show up quite a bit in Japanese baseball, and I'm pretty sure I've seen them in Mexican soccer on occasion.

Oh I see. That's why I was confused. I thought the numbers were supposed to be the unusual part.

Johnny Neves of the Fargo-Moorehead Twins had a surname that spelled "seven" backwards and wore an appropriate number.

Haha this has turned into "Who wears "0" or "00" thread"

I tried to quarantine that on the last page... sadly, people don't understand those numbers are far more common in certain sports (mainly basketball and baseball) than others.

Jim Otto of the Oakland Raiders wore Ot-Oh.

LeCharles Bentley requested 00 for the same reason when he signed with the Browns. I believe the league turned him down, and that Otto himself did not appreciate the sentiment and was kind of an ass about it (racially motivated? Pure speculation on my point.) Anyway, we all remember how this one became a moot point and a typical classic chapter in Cleveland sports history.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the chief for 00. Has any team ever SIMULTANEOUSLY had a '0' and '00'? The Celtics have had numerous '0's since Parish's number was retired (Walter McCarty, Leon Powe, currently Avery Bradley)
