Two years ago, the Giants won the World Series and believed a red thong had a lot to do with it. For those who are unfamiliar with the history of San Francisco’s “rally thong,” it was discovered by Aubrey Huff during one of the worst slumps of his career. You can read the lingerie’s full background here, and see some pictures of Huff flaunting it at the Giants World Series parade here. Apparently the Giants feel as though the powers of the thong have run their course, so they’ve decided to replace it.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the thong has been replaced in the clubhouse with a sleeveless t-shirt that reads “I’m sexy and I know it” across the front in glittery letters.
“Whoever gets the game-winning hit has to wear it,” Pagan said while rocking the shirt Thursday after his game-winning, three-run homer in the 9th against the Reds.
If the players believe in it, it works. I’m sure Bruce Bochy will have no problem with his team’s new muscle shirt if it results in another World Series rung.
