Jason Giambi's Lucky Gold Thong

From the category of, "you're probably revealing too much information than the public should or really needs to know" department, Jason Giambi revealed that he wears a lucky gold thong under his uniform pants when he tries to snap out of a slump.

Girly man? Crazy man? Silly man?

If the back story were that he took it off a Bangkok stripper in a game of Texas hold 'em at 2 a.m. on a cruise near Cabo San Lucas while partying with Guns 'N Roses and doing flaming shots with the Dixie Chicks, well, that would make it more interesting. The story didn't reveal where Giambi sourced the undergarment. Perhaps Brian McNamee procured it for him. After all, you doubt that Major League Ballplayers would purchase XXL skimp undergarments themselves in Manhattan, where many worship the Yankees more than their religions. Somehow, news would have gotten out.

But, no, Giambi had to tell the whole world about his superstition and his cure for the common batting slump. Okay, so it's not a common batting slump, for him at his age it could be a career batting slump. Teams simply don't let mid-thirties first basemen who can't field a lick hang around when they're hitting a buck eighty and only have warning track power.

The New York Daily News apparently broke the story, and they've been good at digging up the dirt on many a New Yorker. In this case, they'll be fervent about digging up the gold, as in gold underwear. Apparently, Giambi, the owner of the garment, might have loaned it to other teammates when they were in slumps.

Male bonding at its finest, wouldn't you say?

So, Mr. Giambi, if you have any other secrets, rest assured that they won't remain safe in New York for long.

Indeed it is not a great story, I would call him, silly man, at the end it doesn't matter all that matters is that he is a great player.
