I never did pay much attention to players' numbers growing up.

That's too bad when I'm drunk enough to play Club Keno at the bar I always pick the numbers of my favorite Cubs.

99 was not a number I picked. I can't remember if that was Hundtley's number because I blacked out his time with the team as a Freudian self-defense mechanism to protect what lingers of my sanity. I'll go with Rick Vaughn.

That being said I wonder if Trevor Gretzsky would wear it if he makes it to the majors as a tribute to his old man.

It's Kosuke Fukudome's tag-team partner that got cut; So Taguchi I think.

I know Taguchi is right. Don't recall Hundley wearing 99, but Tommy seems sure, so that must be it. I need to get up earlier.

Todd Hundley in 2001 and So Taguchi in 2009. Which means Spriggs is not the winner today:

Ummm, the correct timeline goes:

1. Wake up
2. Eat hamburger
3. Brush teeth with hamburger flavored toothpaste
4. Visit BN
5. Eat hamburger
6. Cheat
7. Eat hamburger
8. Eat hamburger
9. Make inane posts on BN about nothingness
10. Eat 2 hamburgers
11. Go to work
12. Realize work is a hamburger factory
13. Scream with joy
14.

Your joy brings me more hamburgers.

Ya, I will make my guesses (before reviewing the calendar) more different than my providing answers.
