99 is Gretzky, 23 is Jordan...but who is 32?:
Jim Brown? Magic Johnson? Sandy Koufax? Steve Carlton? Karl Malone? O.J.? This little Flash presentation lets you choose a number and see who the greatest player(s) were that wore that number. It seems to be very North American centric, but at least they got #10 right.

By the way, my vote is for Jim Brown. The site still has a few bugs in it (polls with no options or for the wrong number), but it's interesting to see the choices. I think the toughest number for me to choose would have been 9. Ted Williams, Gordie Howe, Maurice Richard, Bobby Hull (and others). I don't argue with their selection, but then again it is an American site.

Cool idea. I love Hank Aaron and all, but Reggie Jackson will always be my #44. And my first brush with #32 was unfortunately OJ but no surprise they passed on him. at least they got #10 right Hmm that didn't look like Jim Zorn :)

Heh good job NYS, I was going to bring up Gaedel but I've hit my midget quota for 2003 already.

Don't forget the number "??" that Max Patkin (the Clown Prince of Baseball) wore when entertaining the fans.
