Zim Bear  w/Zimmer

Don Zimmer received his very own Zim Bear. Apparently, Jimmy Leyland told Zim to tell him "Now I've seen it all". According to Marc Topkin at the Times Don's son Tim was quoted as saying that the "Phone has been ringing off the hook..The Rays better get a heck of a lot more than 10,000 of them."

This morning Roger Mooney tweeted this picture of Zimmer holding on to one of his Zim Bears...a proud poppa moment.

Topkin also notes that the Zim Bear went viral and that Zimmer was understandably ignorant to exactly what that meant. Here are some of the links from around the internet:
