There is no more iconic image in the short history of this franchise than Evan Longoria with his arms raised as he rounds first base following his playoff-clinching home run in Game 162.

And with the Longoria arms raised figurine giveaway tomorrow night, and in the style of Planking and Tebowing, Rays fans are now having pictures taken of themselves as they “Do the Longo.”

The picture below comes from a collection of images that are starting to show up on the Rays Facebook page.

    Everyone has clenched fists. Any hack on the street can celebrate with clenched fists... but it takes a Longo to open those hands up, fingers to the sky, let completely loose when you just hit the biggest home run of your life...

    Thanks for the explanation!! I wondered what the phrase meant when I saw it behind home plate during Friday's game. Love it 😀
