Giants to debut “The Tim Lincecum Show?”

The Giants sent shockwaves through the Twitterverse when they posted this on Tuesday: 

For all we know, this could just be a social media intern having a little fun with photoshop. The “stay tuned” bit makes me think there’s a little bit more to this story, though. Which leads me to a few questions…

1. Will this show be about baseball, extra curriculars, or both?

2. Did the Giants conceive this idea to distract from Lincecum’s less-than-stellar performance of late?

3. If Big Time Timmy Jim’s the host—and it certainly looks like he is—who gets to be his first guests? My vote’s for Brian Wilson and The Machine (aka Pat the Bat).

If this ends up being a real thing, put me on the subscriber list. You can never have too much Timmy.
