To me personally this was bizarre in 1996. At one point receivers in the teens were nothing out of the ordinary...Alworth, Maynard, Charlie Joiner. But by now that had long faded away and aside from an oddity here and there (Jim Jensen, who started out as a QB and got to keep 11) receivers wore numbers in the 80's. The only way you could choose a # in the teens was if all numbers in the 80's were already filled. Such was the case with the wretched 1996 Jets. So Keyshawn settled on 19 and kept it. 

 

Despite the league history, I have never gotten used to wideouts wearing these numbers. I would personally rather have them choose 1-9 if nothing in the 80's is available...or even numbers in the 20's like Cliff Branch and Bob Hayes

Because some guy named Steve wore 19.

 

That's also why Joe Thornton wears 97 and Jonathan Toews wears 16 for team Canada.

The East Fremantle team that plays in the Western Australian Women's Football League features several players with very high numbers on their jerseys - #67, #70, #73 and #98. The #98 is the highest number that I have ever seen on an Australian rules jumper.

From what I heard, he originally wanted number 89.

Just noticed this...if you look in the bottom right corner, you will see an apartment building in the far background. I lived in that building for 11 years.

 

The Smackdown Hotel, Room #316.
