Oh, no… Jack Bauer somehow linked to baseball

Feb 21, 2010, 10:52 AM EDT

In one of the oddest stories you’ll read this spring,’s Mark Bowman writes that Braves outfielder Nate McLouth changed his number to 24 this offseason because of a certain television program that uses the same digits.

“The only reason that I took 24,” McLouth said Saturday, “is because it’s my favorite TV show and Lost isn’t a number.”
Derek Lowe was also hoping to land the number this winter, but it probably had nothing to do with Jack Bauer.  Or even Kim Bauer.
Seriously, someone get us a link to an Opening Day countdown pronto.

    If you watch Lost and can’t think of a number – or six of them – you must not be watching that closely.

    This reminds of the retards who are fans of ESPN and named their children “ESPN” (without any vowels).

    Yeah, I don’t know what he has thinking. But I guess only 5, because 42 is retired.

    E (in ESPN) is, in fact, still a vowel Mr. Meoffer

    24, while entertaining, isn’t that well written. Take it from someone who knows ‘the business.’
