75 is the lucky number
After CR7, R9, R10, and David Beckham’s unofficial ownership of the number 23, it looks like DB75 will be football’s hot initial/number combo in 2009. The Mirror reports that if Beckham’s loan deal to AC Milan is finalised he will play (assuming he actually plays) with a number 75 on his back.
Beckham was born in 1975 (as were Enrique Iglesias, Eva Longoria and Jamie Oliver), so he should be happy with his new number. If the birth year thing is not enough, 75 also opens up the potential for a LXXV tattoo (if he has any available skin remaining).
