Besides the Orioles All-Stars laughing at Prince Fielder‘s triple, Mariano Rivera warming up all alone in the eighth inning was the coolest moment of the All-Star Game. He’s the greatest closer of all time and one of the game’s best people.
Even Orioles fans have to respect this Yankee.
ESPN’s SportsNation asked fans if it would be okay for their favorite team to play “Enter Sandman”, Rivera’s entrance music, when the Yankees visited during Mo’s final season. 49 states said it would be fine. One state said it wouldn’t.
That state would be Maryland.
Even people in Massachusetts are okay with the Red Sox honoring Rivera with some Metallica. What do you think?
