This Video Of Mariano Rivera Leaving The Mound For The Final Time In New York Is Unreal

Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter came to the mound to take the ball from Mariano Rivera for the final time at Yankee Stadium. Rivera was pulled with two outs in the ninth and walked off, and on, and off again to a rousing ovation.

It’s not hyperbole, in this writer’s opinion, to say that this will go down as an all-time great moment in sports history.

The Yankees went on to lose to the Rays 4-0. Although it’d be nice for him to get a save, it’s hard to imagine seeing a better ending for Mo.

    A blown save would have been ideal, but I’ll take a meaningless inning in a loss. Is the nausea tour finally complete?

    Could be the only classless comment I have seen so far. That’s saying something.

    Even Skanks fans are tired of the farewell tour. Fans on Fatcesa’s show and Fatcesa himself agreed. Some fans won’t be satisfied until the stadium, the city and the sport are renamed after the guy.
