Helpful Condom Company Apparently Thought The Twins Were Going To Have A Sex Marathon
Do feel-good stories just gross you out? Did all the tributes to Jim Thome following his 600th home run last night make you run straight for your syrup of ipecac? This milestone may be salvaged for you yet. In the wake of Thome's accomplishment, we suppose someone had to try and use it for publicity - and NuVo condoms delivered. They sent out a press release containing the following:
As a congratulatory gift for Thome's incredible feat, NuVo sent the Minnesota Twins 600 condoms. NuVo hopes this offering to the team will help keep the Twins players and their partners safe during their celebrations!
No word on whether the condoms were actually distributed to the players, but if they were, and given only to players, that would come out to 24 condoms per 25-man roster member. And if that would be insufficient to "protect the Twins players and their partners" through at least last night's celebrations, then even by athlete standards, these Twins would be a wild bunch.
In case you still doubt that such a stunt could exist, SI's Jimmy Traina showed us the very real press release earlier today:
One complaint: "home run" should be two words. "Making a bang - literally," though: that, we can get behind. Oh, and apparently this is what they mean by "urban" packaging? We'll take their word for it, we guess...although the unnecessary umlauts are nothing short of spectacular. Anyway, we're not sure if the Twins will actually make use of the prophylactics, but if that one Head & Shoulders commercial is any indication, maybe they should just give them all to Joe Mauer.
