Memorising?

I have come across this exhaustive recall in world champion-level sports/games players whom I know.

I think it's cos this pointless crap just means a lot more to them, which is why they strove for that level in the first place.
Ive heard Jordan had incredible eyesight, like can read the fine print from across the room. Wouldnt be suprised if most great athletes have weird bonus quirks like that.

Theres a david foster wallace essay where he justifies not being as cool as a world class athlete by saying their autobiographies are usually boring and that they probably have some type of functional stupidity that he as a tortured intellectual prevents him from achieving similar heights in sport

I have lots of long ones full of numbers and capital letters and symbols and I can remember a fair few by muscle memory, but only on my keyboard.
do you find different numbers have their own flavours? like odd and even but also like 6776 compared to 1331 compared to 2947?
