"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

The King of Kool


Harvey Araton has a piece in the Times today about the understated elegance of Mariano Rivera. Nothing new here but I never mind reading another puff piece on Mo, do you?

Puff or not, I could read on and on and on about him. I don't care if it's only about what kind of cereal he likes (perhaps a future "Taster's Cherce" segment? Hee hee!)


..and this gal also thinks damn!, he can wear a suit too!

He's a pure class act, all the way!

I was at Newark Airport yesterday, on my way back home, and I got a slice of pizza in the Famiglia's pizza next to my flight's gate. I sit down to eat, and look at a wall covered with pictures of famous people who profess to love to Famiglia's. There's one guy in a suit with an open-collar shirt, smiling, the picture looking straight at me. "Mo!" I said aloud, and I smiled back at his picture. Gosh I love that guy.

I also have a strange desire to buy a Canali suit . . . ;)

My favorite quote from the article:

"He is the face of metronomic end-game execution ..."

People can't help themselves from coming up with new and interesting ways to describe what he does and how he does it.

He is metronomic. He's a lot of things, but most of all he's unique.

And he's a Yankee. Thank God for that.
