I am not much of a sports follower, or necessarily a tigers (or anything) fan, but I overheard some people talking at work about the MLB Detroit Tiger’s coach wearing lucky underwear. They were talking about how he has been wearing them and as a result the Tigers have been on a winning streak, and when asked in a press conference whether or not he would be wearing “special underwear” he responded with “I will be wearing special underwear and if we win, I will wear them at the next game, too.” But this is all hear-say, you know.
Fortunately, Yahoo news churned up some credible info on the subject. On Thursday, the sports page posted, “The 66-year-old has provided one of the more unusual talking points in the lead up to the postseason playoffs after revealing he never changes his underwear when his team is winning.” I certainly agree. He even went so far as to reveal to the press that he wore “long-underwear…or longer than boxer trunks.”
It’s really quite hilarious to me, lucky underwear, though I am sure he’s not the only one.
It just got me thinking–if I had thousands of fans, would I want them all thinking about my underwear?
