I think everyone knows Cruyff adorned himself with the 14 because he wanted his own number to make unqiue, but I've always wondered why: Osvaldo(Ossie) Ardiles wore #1 when he was a defensive midfielder. Vitor Baia wearing #99 I'm sure there are many more examples of players wearing bizarre shirt numbers, feel free to add them on. I would love to know the story behind these two in particular though. Anyone have the scoop? Anyone remember Zamorana wearing 1+8 (IIRC) when Ronaldo went to Inter? lol, quite possibly the stupidest number I've ever seen!
