    Question about an ex-Ram

    This question was asked by a Giants fan on their board and it surprized me that I had not idea about the answer. Of course, sometimes there isn't a reason at all but here's the question:

    Why does Kurt Warner wear number 13?

    It's trivial at best, but I am curious if there's an actual reason for the choice in number. He is obviously attached to it since he switched from #10 his rookie year in 1998 back to #13 in 1999. He wore it in Europe as well as for the Barnstormers too.

    Was his favorite player Marino? Anyone out there actually know the answer?

    I recall reading that it was actually an anti-superstition statement. Because of his faith, he does not believe in "unlucky" numbers, like 13, so he chose that jersey number as a symbol of his belief.

    You are right David. It was written in his book he wrote "All Things Possible"

    "I had worn number 12 in high school, a la Roger Staubach, but that was taken so I settled on 13...I think I took 13 because it was the closest number to 12 and because a guy named Dan Marino was putting up some pretty nice numbers in the NFL with that jersey." He also goes on to say 13 is spiritual because he wanted to "demystify" the superstition
