Most successful # in all of sports ?
Mon Feb 08, 2016 9:34 am
  • Haven't seen it yet but ESPN is doing a best #24 bit. It got me to thinking, what's been the most successful number in all of sports?

    I haven't given it much thought yet but #23 with MJ came to mind but then I couldn't really think of another great #23. I don't really follow a lot of the other sports that closely so this is a tough topic for me.
    I do have faith that y'all can make this interesting.

    Remember, it's the most successful # combined. You could add Jeff Gordon's #24 to BeastMode's #24 to Jr's #24
    Opinions are just as welcome as factual totals.

    It's gunna be a long off seasons, let's have some fun fighting over stupid crap like this.

    Ready,Set, Go

  • #9, and its not even close.

    Hockey, soccer, football, basketball, baseball, even Cricket. The number 9 has by far been the best historically. In recent years, not so much, as the number 9 has been retired by so many sports clubs.

    Google it.

    You google it... lazy.

    MLB: Hornsby, Williams, DiMaggio, Reggie, Nettles, Buddy Bell, Olerud, Joe Torre
    Football: Brees, Sonny Jurgensen
    Soccer: SUAREZ, Torres, Drogba, Crespo, Fowler, Shearer, Ronaldo (Brazilian), Inzaghi
    Hockey: Howe, Bobby Hull, Mike Modano, Maurice Richard (reeshard), Glen Anderson, Bucyk, Dupuis, Adam Graves, Havlat, Lanny McDonald (with the pmed stache),

    The number 9 car was Kasey Kahne's first Cup car ride with Ray Evernham. The 9 was also driven by Awesome Bill from Dawsonville (Bill Elliott), who won 38 of 446 races in that #9 car.

    Don't forget that #9 QB on the championship 85 Bears squad. Jim McMahon, I believe...

    Also, Carson Palmer wore #9, and the late Steve McNair also.

  • Figured Petty was as deep as we needed to go with Nascar... and look above for my last attempt at figuring out who drove what car.

    None of those QBs seems all that legendary to me. Maybe McMahon for his very short "Joe Namath-esque" window of relevance.
