    Giambi's slump-busting technique worth its weight in gold

    http://www.portfolio.com/views/colum...ambi-Struggles

    Jason Giambi has a deep, dark secret. Deeper than his compulsion to sleep on the side of the bed nearest the door, and darker than his dream of growing up to be a heavy-metal musician.

    The deepest, darkest secret harbored by the New York Yankees first baseman is that whenever he is in a prolonged hitting funk, he wears a gold lamé, tiger-stripe thong under his uniform. "I only put it on when I'm desperate to get out of a big slump," he confides.

    Over Giambi's checkered career in the Bronx, he 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."

    There are more things wrong with that story than there are words in the English dictionary.

    I wouldn't want to be the clubbie who has to wash it.

    I wonder if the thong was left over from the Babe?

    baseball players really aren't the smartest dudes, are they? (rhetorical question)
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Anybody working on the Seinfeld quote?
    The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle

    As Seinfield said to Cosmo, "Your boys should stay in their neighbourhood".

    That's good enough for me.

    On Kramer, wearing no underwear:

    Some thongs from the clubhouse should never get told.
