Due to a quirk in the way our calendar works (which would take far too much time to go into here; suffice it to say they spent an awful lot of time figuring the whole thing out back in the late 1500s), today's day, month and year line up perfectly. Another repeating date like 12/12/12 won't happen until 2112, so you'd better enjoy it while it lasts. To celebrate this oddity, we've come up with a list of some of the greatest players in sports to wear No. 12. Who do you have as the best ever?
