When a sports team or league decides to retire a number, that usually means no one else will ever wear it. The Tigers retired Al Kaline's number 6, so no Tiger will ever wear 6 again. Same with Gordie Howe or Steve Yzerman with the Red Wings. Jackie Robinson and Wayne Gretzky have the same honor with Major League Baseball and the NHL. Now word is the University of Michigan wants to "reissue" Grand Rapids' favorite son Gerald Ford's number 48 "to honor him". Huh?
