By the numbers: Madam I’m Adam

Over the nearly 32 years at the Record I’ve shot a few sports coincidences involving jersey numbers. Once, 3 football players had sequential numbers from left to right, and then several basketball photos where a player and their opponent were wearing the same digits.

Recently, I photographed another numerical milestone. During a University of the Pacific men’s basketball game against Loyola Marymount University in Stockton, I shot UOP’s Maleke Haynes (#0) driving to the basket between 2 LMU players.

To Haynes’ left, was Shamar Johnson (#24). On Haynes’ right side was Marin Mornar (#42). See the pattern? 24-0-42 reads the same backward as it does forward: a palindrome. And since my last name is also a palindrome, the photo has a special meaning for me.
