Lloyd McClendon is smiling because, presumably, he has clean underroos on in that photo. He does not have them on now.

This nearly slipped through the cracks, so thanks to NC Dee for posting about it in our comments.

Legendary Lloyd McClendon's tale grows taller -- mostly because his drawers can stand up on their own.

While some of us -- coughcoughme -- are happily working in a superstitious-less jinx-taunting zone with headlines about raising championship flags next year, McClendon is working his mojo any way he can.

That way is apparently asking the underwear gods for their assistance on a daily basis, as he refuses to change his.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today wrote about it yesterday:

McClendon ... has not changed his underwear during the streak so as not to jinx it.

"Guys are getting a little uncomfortable standing next to me now," McClendon said. "They believe they can't be beat. So if this thing keeps going, it can (get) ugly."

Smell that? Mmm Mmm! Smells like a winning streak to me!

Obviously we hope the Tigers keep the winning streak alive for a little while longer. It's pretty fun after all. But I think we can all agree it won't be the worst thing in the world either when the Tigers are able to breathe free again.

So we've learned all about Lloyd's superstition today. What do you do when you're trying to gather positive vibes for the team?
