The Yankees Wear Thongs. No, Really.

Sometimes, this site writes itself. We certainly weren’t prepared for this though…

Here’s a heartwarming story. In fact, it warms the heart like a pair of fresh-out-of-the-dryer man-panties warms the loins.

Apparently, tough guy Jason Giambi of the Yank-Offs has quite an interesting ritual that he uses to help himself bust out of batting slumps. He wears a gold thong under his uniform. Seriously. And not only that, but he lends the thing out to his teammates when he feels they could use a little “help” at the plate.

Johnny Damon admits to wearing it.

So does the immortal “Captain” Derek Jeter.

Jorge Posada says that, while he hasn’t himself donned the magic undies, that “a lot of players have worn it.” And hes not sure if it gets washed between uses/players or not.

What. The. Hell?

Uh….ballplayers are a strange bunch…..umm…yeah…

That’s all I got, man. The Yankees wear thongs. My lowly attempts at satire can’t even begin to compete with that reality. Thanks, Jason Giambi, for rendering all attempts at witty or clever put downs obsolete.

Hey! Here’s somethin’: Did you realize that Mr. Giambi, he of the .181 average, is the 2ND HIGHEST PAID PLAYER IN BASEBALL IN 2008?!

That’s entertaining, right? I need a drink….

    Money makes the world go round. I’d wear a thong too if I was making what Giambi was making. Who gives a rat’s ass if I could actually hit the ball.

    I guess so…but somehow I doubt its in his contract that he has to wear a thong. Apparently its also not in there that he has to be worth a damn…

    Well, nowadays they have those “good behavior/etiquette/grooming” clauses in contracts. Least we forget a bum looking Johnny Damon now spiffing a GQ look courtesy of Mr. Steinbrenner. I don’t really think the organization cares if its players wear thongs especially if Jeter and the others are following suit (no pun intended).

    I love the orioles almost as much as I love oreos!
