fan friday :: mariano

So this happened last night.



I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little teary eyed when I watched it. If you didn't catch Mariano Rivera's final send off at Yankee Stadium, you can check it out here. Editor's note: If you have a heart or ever played sports, this will make you cry.

I don't particularly like the Yankees (don't tell my Grandpa that), but this man is a class act and this moment is a special moment. Not just in baseball, but athletics in general. It made me happy and made me re-appreciate my love for sports. So thanks for that, Rivera. 


Linking up with Sarah for Fan Friday.


Also, linking up with Whitney for #backthatazzup Friday! Went with a little Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and their tribute to baseball (mainly the Mariners). Now, it's not a tribute to Rivera, but still, it just works, I think.

I am certainly not a Yankees fan but I am a baseball fan and it definitely tugged on my heart string a little...

The Yankees are in Houston this weekend. The Astros are awful; I bet there will be more Yankees fans than anything else.

I hate the Yankees and what they stand for, but this was really cool. Mo is one of the greatest pitchers of all time, and no one can deny that.

I'm not a Yankees fan AT ALL, but I even liked this. Seems like a really great athlete and person. Okay, back to being an O's fan, now. :)
