11 Must-Read Facts About The Number Eleven

11 reasons the number 11 is a special number.

Throughout my soccer career from elementary school up to my senior year of high school, my jersey number has always been 11. Because of this, I am obviously biased that 11 is the best number. However, I will say there are cool attributes to the number that make these double digits remain my favorite number.

Every time I look at the clock and it is either 11:11 am or 11:11 pm, I always shout "11:11 make a wish!!" I am superstitious that the number eleven is an omen for me. I know it sounds strange but my fascination with the number led me to research some significance of eleven.

Here are eleven fun facts about eleven:

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
