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!
