TXHT Jersey Share – The Story Behind the Number 75

Ladies and Gentlemen we are back with another edition of TXHT Jersey Share as we continue looking at Michael’s Churchill jerseys.

Now despite the things I said yesterday about not having the most fun of times with Churchill, it did allow me to do something I had wanted to do and that was change my jersey number from my typical 12, 10, or 16 to the number 75 and Churchill allowed me to do that. Now way the number 75 you ask? Here’s why…

The number 75 is the age of how old my grandfather was when he passed away in June 2000. I wear the number 75 out of respect to him. My grandfather was Sgt. Major Lesser Lindenbaum who fought in both World War 2 and the Korean War. He was also someone that I was very close to, and wish I got to spend more time with. When he passed away it devastated me, and playing hockey helped me get through the pain of losing him. Also when he passed away that was when I decided to change my number officially to 75.
