  1. Tim says:

    Upon hearing the news that the Yankees signed Richie Sexton, slugger Jason Giambi has embarked on a new training program to keep his job as an everyday player. According to reports from Yankee insiders, Giambi will start and end each practice with a bottle of Jack Daniels. The slugger believes that it will help him stay relaxed in the batters box and improve his range when he dives at first.

  2. Tim says:

    Jason Giambi entertains Vegas locals by playing the Star Spangled Banner on an empty bottle of Jack Daniels.

  21. E-ROC says:

    Jason Giambi gets stopped by police, and is asked: “Have you been drinking?”
    Giambi replies: “Okay, yes, I have… how did you know officer? Was I swerving across the road, or speeding?”
    “No Mr Giambi,” replied the policeman, “…nothing else can explain that fat ugly woman sitting next to you.”


  65. Ben N.C. says:

    In the world of competitive drinking, Jason Giambi is known as Jack’s Short Right Porch.

  66. usty says:

    Well if Floyd Landis could use this excuse….

  67. Kyle says:

    “Don’t worry, I’m the DDing tonight”

  68. Smitt Dog says:

    Forced to provide urine on a prodigious scale, here Yankee slugger Jason Giambi does his part by “replenishing his fluids” in preparation for a Mitchell Investigation inspired “random drug screen”.

  69. Well, another All-Star break is in the books, and it was one for the ages. Everyone focuses on the spectacle of the Game or the Home Run Derby, but for the players, the contest they look forward to the most is the “Man The Fuck Up, Finish That Shit and Stop Being A Bitch” Binge Drinking Derby, sponsored by State Farm and Brawny Paper Towels, annualy held at one of the host cities’ finest sports bars every All-Star Tuesday night.

    Pictured here is the three-time defending champion, Jason Giambi, polishing off his fourth bottle of Jack Daniels. He did manage to get through half of one more bottle before vomiting and then setting his regurgitation on fire, followed by smashing the bottle over his head and then having sex with all of the bartenders (regardless of gender) in the smoldering ashes — in what is quickly becoming his annual ritual. I saw the whole thing live, and it is electric.

    Coming in second and third this year, with valiant efforts that ultimately fell way too short, were Brian McCann and Ozzie Guillen, who still refuses to acknowledge the fact that he’s no longer an active player and thus, ineligible to compete in the Man The Fuck Up Derby.

    Coming in last this year, again, was Red Sox Catcher Jason “Tek It Easy, Champ” Varitek, who apparently passed out after drinking half of one Appletini while still wearing his catcher’s mask. He was rushed to the hospital and had his stomach pumped, where doctors discovered what they called a “shocking quantity” of partially digested baked beans, Levitra tablets, various unidentified bodily fluids not belonging to Varitek, and a pair of men’s boxer briefs with the word “Timlin” written on the waistband. As of press time, he is expected to make a full recovery and should be back on the field by next week, fully healed and ready to resume his pursuit of the record for the worst single season by an everyday player in MLB history.

    Giambi later finished Varitek’s drink, which he described as “pussy-weak”. He collected his prize, a new 2008 Ford Edge, which will be delivered to him personally by Derek Jeter, as well as a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation made in his name. He then punched Jon Papelbon in the throat. It was electric.

    hr derby or binge drinking vacation……well played martini

  71. Bambino'sGhost says:

    Jack and Giambi

    Jack and Giambi
    Seemed dead as zombies
    Yet wretched a pail of vomit.
    With Jack passed round
    A fifth Giambi do pound
    Then fornicated both Vixen and Comet.

  72. Andy In Sunny Daytona says:

    A Giambi Haiku…

    All-Star break is here
    A golden thong hides some things
    But Jack reveals all.

  73. Gustavo says:

    That’s not Giambi drinking, the ‘Stache is holding up the bottle. Look closely, Giambi is just trying to get it away from him.

  74. Mike A. says:

    “I can’t believe that motherfucker stole my laptop. I need a drink.”

  75. scott says:

    “J.D. is MY all star MVP too”

  76. Pete says:

    Jason forgoes a ‘Crazy straw’.

  77. Pete says:

    The best part is that the ‘stache soaks up about a half a glassful for later…

  78. [...] a southpaw, so obviously Jason Giambi would be more useless than Jose Molina tonight, or maybe he’s just nursing a hangover [...]

  79. [...] Head over to read the whole thing — I can’t possibly do it justice without completely reprinting it. However, there were a couple of parts I found particularly interesting. The first of which is Giambi’s reply to the question of how he views himself as a defensive first baseman. I didn’t know what to expect after reading the question, but it certainly wasn’t this: “I view myself as great.” Yeah, right. Tyler’s talking about playing first base, Jason, not about chugging Jack. [...]
