Yankees Jason Giambi wears a gold thong; “outs” his friends

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 16, 2008

The Daily News reports Jason Giambi wears thong when in slump, shares it with teammatesgold thong for Jason Giambi Yankees player

OK. Athletes are superstitious. Creatures of habit. It happens. We all saw the movie Major Leagues.

Do you know what’s on your way? Can you imagine the taunting you, and your teammates are going to receiving at Shea and Fenway? What were you thinking? Or did the steriods go to your mind?

And it’s one thing to admit your wearing a gold lamé, tiger-stripe thong under your uniform, but you “out’d” your teammates Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Johnny Damon, Robin Ventura, and Robinson Cano.

Notes to Giambi’s teammates, do not share any information with Giambi that you don’t want in the press:

  • Don’t tell him if you are dating more than one woman.(Derek)Jason Giambi
  • Don’t tell him if you are considering asking to be traded
  • Don’t tell him if you tried a performance enhancing drug
  • Don’t tell him if you don’t like Joe Girardi or Hank Steinbrenner
  • Don’t tell him if you missed curfew
  • Don’t tell him anything….

No code. No honor.

This potentially extremely long season just got longer for you and your teammates.


Hey Babe – What size thong do you wear?

Crazy Horse Memorial, Black Hills, South Dakota

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 4, 2008

The Crazy Horse Memorial was started June 3rd, 1948 to honor the Northe American Indians.
Crazy Horse was the only chief who did not surrender nor sign a peace treaty with the United States.

This sculpture is to be world’s largest mountain sculpture. To put it in perspective, when completed, Mount Rushmore would fit in one eye ball of the Craze Horse Monument.

There is no government funding involved in the project. This allows them to do as they wish, on their own schedule. As you can imagine, this also creates a tight budget.

No one really knows when this project will be completed. It may take an additional 50 years or more…

For additional information, please visit the Crazy Horse Memorial site.
