Despite their winning ways, it’s been a bit of a stressful year for the Giants when it comes to the public eye. No, they don’t have the Showtime camera’s following them around any longer but Melky Cabrera and Guillermo Mota certainly did their best to keep the orange and black in the spotlight – for all the wrong reasons.
The Giants have made their presence felt on the late night talk show circuit the last few years, from Brian Wilson hitting just about all of them after the World Series to Matt Cain doing David Letterman’s Top 10 List after his Perfect Game in June – but the most recent appearance might not be their most proudest moment.
The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, fresh off the Melky Cabrera suspension decided to take a shot at the San Francisco franchise during his most recent “Hidden Messages” skit. The semi-frequent segment takes popular topics/products and alters the images to show the “hidden message” in them. Leno and company took what was a seemingly normal San Francisco Giants logo and, well, here you go:
Taken with a grain of salt, it deserves a small chuckle as it was a creative idea. You can watch Leno mock the Giants among a few other popular topics by clicking here.
