THE DIRT – the buzz around town
so last week we asked boston who they thought was the hottest red sox player from this year’s team (ellsbury! nice work) … and in that poll, i joked “ladies … i know each of you formed your opinion on this juicy topic at some point during this past season. i mean, how could you not when you have the team stripping down to their skivies and doing the jig after every win?” … well funny thing, those skivies i was referring to … the actual ones the boys wore during the games … are up for purchase! first reaction? sweet! second reaction? ewwwwwwwww.
according to the track girls at the herald, phil castinetti of sportsworld in saugus has gotten his mitts on a rather large collection of all-star undies and he’s selling them on ebay.
the perfect “gift-that-keeps-on-giving” for the red sox nation guys in your life? ah, i’m thinking not. bidding on manny’s underpants started at a kind of pathetic $9.99, and as of yesterday, there were no takers. ummmmm, perhaps it’s the description of the item that states “they show great game use.” double ew. last week, you could even find mike lowell‘s (3rd sexiest according to our poll!) jock strap up for grabs until ebay pulled it down for being “adult-oriented material.” triple eww.
and, there’s more spandex to come including our dancing closer (and fifth sexiest!) jonathan papelbon’s stretchy skivies, which – you might recall – got quite a workout the night the team clinched the al east!
so, moral of the story? while we might enjoy watching the boys dance around in their spandex … we’re thinking actually owning a pair of the uncleaned undies is a tad-bit … um, gross.
