Adrian Staehle Presents: Project 99

When you think of your favorite athlete, you think of the team they're on, then you think of the jersey, and that’s when you look at the number they wear. Eventually, that number might become your favorite.

The number athletes wear could be their favorite number, a number they have worn through high school, or any other different meaning to them.

Project 99 is just that. There will be 99 numbers to choose from, 0-99, and you are thinking "that is a hundred numbers"; well, I wanted to be a part of my own project so I'll let you know what number I picked at the end of this article. There are 99 left.

The sports that are included are every major sport in the following list: baseball, basketball, football, hockey, soccer, auto racing, and any sport that has number jerseys in it, and it can be college or professional sports.

The way the project works is 99 writers will choose one number, and, again, it is the first 99 writers who will be involved in it. It's first come, first served, but I hope that everyone can be a part of it somehow.

The writer will choose a number and will write an article on the best athlete to wear that certain number; again, this will be based on opinion, so there will be a lot of people disagreeing, but this is something that the whole community can be a part of.

Once you pick your number, your number will be based on the day that we start counting down to the new year. This project will start on Sept. 23, 2009; from then we will start the countdown to the new year at zero.

So the number you choose will be based on the time the article will be put out to the Bleacher Report community.

I think this can be really fun and really interesting, so have some fun with it, and I hope this will be a good way for the community to end off on a good note and that it will raise some eyebrows in each sport here on B/R.

If you can get the word out on this project, I'd appreciate it. I want this to be a success, and with your help and opinions, it can be one.

I will be doing No. 19. Wondering why I chose it? Find out when I publish my article, on Dec. 12.
