Happy Birthday, Mo!

The New York Yankees' immortal closer, Mariano Rivera, turned 40 over the weekend. For the last 13 seasons, Mo has been the best closer in baseball and is a surefire first ballot Hall of Famer. I’ve never followed the career of a Hall of Famer player on my favorite team in any sport from rookie year to retirement, and I have the chance with Mo and Derek Jeter. But in Mo’s case, he’s the best there ever was at his position and I—and every Yankee fan of my generation—are fortunate to have seen him perform magic on the pitching mound for all these years.
