Rally Monkey? Hell no. Rally Thong? Now that’s more like it!
The Rally Thong?
In case you haven’t heard about the greatest fan promotion since the Lincecum wig, the Rally Thong is not yet available in stores. (Although I’m working on a deal with Victoria’s Secret right now to manufacture thousands of red thong bikini bottoms with the phrase “It’s Magic Inside” stitched right over the crotch.)
The Rally Thong got its start last week when Aubrey Huff, mired in a 3-for-32 slump, decided to wear a pair of red thong laced panties to change his luck. This according to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News.
“It’s the Rally Thong,” Huff told Baggs. “It’s not a slump thong. If I was wearing it to break a slump, I would’ve burned it a long time ago. This is a team thing. When I broke it out (last Tuesday), we had 30 games left. I said, `Guys, here’s 20 wins right here.’” The Giants are 5-1 since Huff has donned the delicates.
Evidently, he walks around the clubhouse in them (at least it’s not Pablo Sandoval right?), does interviews (with Amy G?) in them, and even walks through the clubhouse food room wearing them (sausage anyone?). I did find this picture of Huff in his thong, but it is far too risque to post on 22gigantes.com.
Usually when a player is in a slump, he’s advised to loosen up. But Huff has never been one to go with the flow. Whatever floats your boat, Aubrey. All I know is the Giants are winning with Huff and his tight, magical panties.
