My Favorite Number is 14

I don't particularly believe in rituals like most athletes. I don't always have to wear a number, but in some cases I can't help it. If the number is there I put it on. Why? Mostly out of habit, and partly out of nostalgia. 

When I first started playing soccer when I was 10 I was given the number 14 to wear. Since we would keep the jerseys I would wear the same number every year. I slowly grew to love it. So whenever I play any kind of sport where I am required to wear a number I look for the number 14. And whenever I see that number I naturally think back to my youth. 

And that is the fact...
