Sacred Numbers

from the Montreal Gazette,
Canadiens goalie Jose Theodore has used some ancient history this season to modernize his mask: he's had LX, his sweater number 60 in Roman numerals, painted on both sides. He's also got an LX tattooed inside his left bicep. Dickie Moore and Yvan Cournoyer, two Canadiens Hall of Famers, will see their No. 12 retired next month - on the 12th, of course - and hung from the rafters of the Bell Centre. Moore believed the number he wore from 1951-63 brought him so much luck that when he founded his equipment rental business, he wanted 12 to be part of his telephone number.
