Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon, known for his zany antics in the clubhouse, most recently took his team out West for Woodstock-themed, seven-game road trip. Somewhere along the trip, the theme turned into the 1970s, and Maddon began giving out vintage ’70s scents to the team’s “Player of the Game.”
Most recently, Maddon gave Rays infielder Cole Figueroa a bottle of Sex Panther cologne by Odeon, a hat tip to the movie “Anchorman,” which was set in the ’70s. Maddon also rounded up other 1970s colognes such as Brut, Old Spice, Aqua Velva and Hai Karate.
It’s unclear if the Sex Panther cologne really does work every time, 60 percent of the time, since the Rays sit in last place in the American League East. At least they’re having fun, though.
