While trying to keep myself amused during the interminable wait until the start of the NLCS on Saturday, I came across this little tidbit online

Huff’s underwear providing inspiration

SAN FRANCISCO — With the playoffs now in full swing, it’s only fitting the Giants’ most valuable article of clothing gets its just due on the national stage.

Welcome to the big show, Aubrey Huff’s rally thong.

Since Aug. 30, the Giants first baseman has worn a red thong in hopes of rallying San Francisco to its first postseason appearance in seven years. When Huff first graced the clubhouse with his thong’s presence, the Giants were 72-59 and six games behind first-place San Diego in the National League West.

Huff predicted the Giants would go 20-10 with the rally thong and, wouldn’t you know it, that’s exactly how they finished the season en route to being crowned division champs.

After a run like that, Huff’s thong isn’t going anywhere.

“It’s just something to kind of loosen the guys up when it started, and it turned out to be kind of a nice run,” Huff said before Friday’s Game 2. “I couldn’t stop and I’m wearing it right now, if you’re interested. Kinda get used to it. You know what I’m saying?”

He’s been wearing a thong?

Well, let’s just file this one under “Things I Wish I Didn’t Know”. I’m still trying to rid my mind of the unpleasant images this has conjured up:

I’m now about to veer dangerously close to “Too Much Information” territory, but personally I don’t see how this can possibly be comfortable while playing baseball. In my opinion, thongs aren’t even comfortable while standing still, let alone running or batting. It’s total butt floss! And how could a thong possibly provide enough, uh, “coverage” for a man?

And it’s red! Hey Aubrey, red = Phillies!

Hmm, Aubrey is one of those unisex names; maybe he’s a little confused? Or he wants to make sure he doesn’t have any visible panty/brief lines during the game. πŸ™‚

Wonder if he uses SisqΓ³’s “Thong Song” as his at-bat music?


[for the record, I do NOT know the man in the photo – this is a random dude in a pic I found doing a Google search]

    Mike – “banana hammock” LOL! Thanks for the slang lesson. Who knew blogging could be so enlightening? πŸ˜‰
    Emma – The Phillies and I thank you for your support! I hope we can beat the “Jints” for you.
    Shaun – I too am looking forward to Saturday. Great pitching matchup, and the thong is going DOWN! πŸ™‚
    Peter – Good point!
    Jeff – I think I heard part of that game on TV. I had it on in the background while I was doing other stuff. Of course, it stuck in my mind, which is why I went searching for it this week.

    Now I have reason to laugh and point at him whenever he comes to bat. And I will. Would love if the whole stadium would, too. =) Can you see that? Would be so great…

    Anyhow, that is just about as gross a picture as I ever hope to see. God help me!

    About your comment concerning Jamie Moyer: I so agree with you. I’d love to see him pursue coaching. Obviously he loves teaching. His problem COULD be the giving of too much info any pitcher under his care but he could curb that if he tries. (he’s a talker, right?)
