Beat Freaks: Jersey Numbers
From the first time I saw The Beat Freaks wear their basketball jerseys in Lakers colors on ABDC, I wanted one of those. Who knew they’d be using them to perform at a Lakers conference finals halftime show. This past weekend at Team Millenia Dance Center, I had a chance to ask them the meaning behind their jersey numbers.
- Bgirl Shorty #11: This is her lucky number and the age she first started dancing
- Teresa #22: This is her favorite number and also her birthday, 6/22. She even has the number 22 in her personalized license plate. Whenever she is driving and sees the number 22 on a license plate, “It’s a reminder that life is perfect and I’m where I’m supposed to be in life. With the good and the bad, life is perfect! And that makes me happy!”
- LindseyB #27: This is her lucky number. In fact, she turned 27 on 6/27 in 2007!
- Lady Jules #33: This number is special to her as a symbol of her faith (Jesus’ age)
- Maryss #88: The significance is from the year of her brother Hichem’s birth, 1988. You probably recall Maryss’ shirt in the ABDC week 5 episode that said, “Hichem 88”
- Rino #098: The area code for Okinawa
- Keeley #143: Text code for ‘I Love You’
Finally, my curiosity has been satiated.
