Giambi's Thong


Jason Giambi reveals that, to end a batting slump, he wears a gold lamé, tiger-striped thong. He adds that he has shared the thong with many teammates, including Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura and Robinson Cano:
All of them wore it and got hits. The thong works every time.
Giambi did not say whether any Yankees have worn one of these.

Not a mental image I need.

Altho I guess it's like the stockings and garter belt in Bull Durham. The baseball movie everyone but me (and Redsock) likes.

More thong news, from USA Today, July 12, 2001:

... Giambi insists Damon could break his season-long offensive struggles if Damon merely would wear a gold thong. ...
Giambi has a pair of the unorthodox undergarments, adorned with flames, though he hasn't yet worn them in a game. Hitting .322, he hasn't felt the need. ...
Roger Clemens, for instance, has some with rockets on them. ...

****

Now all we need is a few women to verify William's undergarments....

I'm scratching my head at this part:

"As long as I can have a fast boat and a margarita machine and can light my hair on fire, I'll be just fine."

Glad he's focused on the important things in life...

Are we to interpret this to mean that they all sharing ONE thong? During ONE game? Gross....

I took it to mean it was the same thong, but not during the same game! I don't think players are going to strip down and trade underwear in the middle of a game. More like a pass-around pack, I would think.

But ack, I must stop thinking about this! It's too disgusting.

I had a feeling Gedman wouldn't get a mention in the glasses article.

Gedman is a sexy beast.
