#RallyZito puts San Francisco Giants to shame

Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to introduce you to the #RallyZito.

We’re sorry.

It was brought to the Haboob Blog’s attention Wednesday that San Francisco Giants fans, in an effort to help pitcher Barry Zito not pitch like Barry Zito, started having some fun with a twitter hashtag.

Along with the fun was the creation of avatars to represent the pitcher, one of which is the image you see on this page.

Complete with a unicorn and feathered jacket, the #RallyZito is credited in part for Zito’s excellent Game 5 performance against St. Louis in the NLCS, when he tossed 7.2 innings of shutout baseball.
