The polls have closed, the votes have been counted and it's time to reveal the results of our asking who were the best Houston pro athletes to wear various uniform numbers.

I'll give you the results of 10 races that I thought were interesting or featured high-profile athletes.

One thing I could really sense from the results was unlike in the political elections, we really got out the youth vote. Athletes who played more recently, and I can't say this was unexpected, tended to do well.

For the rest of the results including a crowded race at 12 and a tie at 55, feel free to click around on the index above the entry.

Glad to see the folks vote for Cynthia Cooper. When she played, the Comets won championships. When she left, the Comets dropped out of sight. She was extraordinary to watch, and I don't even care that much for basketball.

I totally agree but if you have to choose, you can't go wrong with Hakeem. He led us to our only championship seasons in the big 3 (baseball, football, and basketball) and is arguably the greatest C to ever play the game.

Best #34 in Houston history? It has to be Stacey Mack with his Houston career 253 yards rushing.

I love how Tmac lost by the biggest margin on the list.

I was leaning towards the great Vernand Morency.
