Why, now that you mention it, yes ... Yes, it does.
The five thong faces of Jason Giambi
For those who haven't had their stomachs upset yet, read this piece from Portfolio.com, in which Giambi admits to he and his teammates wearing a golden thong to help break extended droughts:
"I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," he tells Portfolio.com. Over the years, the 37-year-old All-Star 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."
No idea if Giambi was just taking a writer along for the proverbial ride, but take a look at those pictures again. Does that look like a man who's lying about having a wedgie?
