Why I have my Number:

I've worn No. 18 since I was 14 years old, and I know that I will never wear a different number ever again. I once saw "The Replacements." It's a movie about football, and even though we don't play football back in Holland, I thought it was a pretty good and inspiring movie. The football star in that movie had number 18, so that's why I picked it.
