Giants embracing the power of Aubrey Huff’s “rally thong”

Aubrey Huff started wearing a “lucky” red, rhinestone-encrusted thong around the clubhouse on August 30 and the Giants are 25-12 since then, so suddenly the “rally thong” is a very popular item in San Francisco.

In fact, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports that the company producing Huff’s preferred brand of thongs sent three giant boxes of their products to the Giants prior to yesterday’s game.

As they say, hilarity ensued.

Baggarly writes that “Huff became a giddy, thong-flinging Santa Claus this morning, distributing them to everyone in the clubhouse” and even handed them out to various media members covering the team. Oddly enough, Huff got into some trouble a few years ago for doing a radio appearance alongside a woman who wasn’t wearing any underwear.

    What was that other “journalist” saying about there being nothing to do in Philly? LOL.

    Please don’t let this be a reason for the thong song to return…

    I would say something about red rhinestone encrusted thongs in San Francisco but I was born politically correct and I intend to die that way.

      Does being born politically correct require a congressman (or woman) from each representative party to be present at birth to give a “blessing” by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance while snipping the umbilical chord?

        No, but it really does help if the moehl is sober.

      Political correctness be damned. Really? Red, rhinestone encrusted thong? On a guy from West Texas? In San Francisco? OK.

    There is a company that is selling rally thong t-shirts – of course. sfthong.com

    “Uh, yeah guys, I wore this thong as a rally piece…mmhmm, yup…”
