Aubrey Huff thanks fans, Zoolander, rally thong for San Francisco Giants' win

If there is such a thing as a World Series parade MVP, it has to be Aubrey Huff of the San Francisco Giants, who managed to pay comedic tribute to Zoolander and launch a marketing campaign for rally thongs during a giant city-wide party.

You'll recall that Huff busted out of a slump in September by wearing what he said was a red rally thong and you just don't throw away a good-luck charm. You respect it, you nurture it (see: monkey, rally). So it was no surprise that it made multiple appeances at the parade and rally Wednesday in San Francisco. "This thing nailed it!," Huff said.

So maybe the thong should have been Series MVP. In any event, you can test its magical powers for yourself. Papi, a Miami-based retailer of underwear "designed for the sexy modern man, a trendsetter whose lifestyle is dynamic, athletic and fun," is selling them at Macy's and Dillard's at papiinc.com.

Just remember: The rose goes in the front, big guy.
