TMI On Giambi, Deter, Thong

Yankees first baseman Jason Giambi sure does love sharing, especially when it’s with his teammates.

The deepest, darkest secret harbored by the New York Yankees first baseman is that whenever he is in a prolonged hitting funk, he wears a gold lamé, tiger-stripe thong under his uniform. “I only put it on when I’m desperate to get out of a big slump,” he confides.

Over Giambi’s checkered career in the Bronx, he has left the “golden thong” in the lockers of slumping teammates Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura, and Robinson Cano. “All of them wore it and got hits,” he reports. “The thong works every time.”

We’re not sure what’s more disturbing – that these men are sharing the same thong, or that said thong’s lamé. We thought only drag queens wore that!

    I’m sensing a much greater symbolism here…

    I guess that knowing your butt floss had been up the ass crack of your teammate really provides you with extra strength and motivation.

    Maybe you get out of the slump even more quickly if you sniff it, too…

    I just don’t understand why Giambi has to wear the baseball uniform over the thong.

  • foofyjim

    All sports are homo-erotic in their hearts. All that butt slapping, showering together, toweling each other off, sharing under garments, etc.

    Oh my…I need to stop and catch my breath.
