During the Twins' 4-3 loss to the Blue Jays on Friday night, Minnesota celebrated the greatest of holidays as they took on the Blue Jays: It was Big Sexy Night. Held in honor of the ageless and peerless Bartolo Colon, every fan that purchased a special event ticket, got one of these bad boys that even the Twins players put on.
Fortunately, mercury was in retrograde or something, and the planets aligned perfectly for Bartolo was on the mound. And his teammates couldn't resist watching him as he prepared:
And when he walked out, there could only be song: Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack."

Though the Twins couldn't deliver a victory to all the fans in attendance, Colon pitched well on his banner evening until he was pulled in the seventh inning. He even turned in some fancy defensive work that Josh Donaldson couldn't help but appreciate:
"It's awesome to see the fans and my teammates do that for me," Colon said after the game. "I'm very thankful for them and I know my family is very thankful. So it's awesome."
