Few if any of us will get to go out on our own terms. Forced retirement, that new kid with all the good ideas and grasp of the latest technology, obesity, something will force you out of your job one day. But not Mo Rivera.
"Shagging, I love to do it," said Rivera, sore in one of the extremities below his waist.
It's only fitting that the greatest closer of all time should go out doing something he loves. Something he does everyday.
"He was just shagging. It's unfortunate," explained CC Sabathia.
Accidents happen. And it is not as though Rivera was just messing around. No. He was shagging with purpose.
"Mo gets his conditioning when he's out there shagging . . . " said Derek Jeter.
sometimes, in life, these things happen. One minute you're shagging in front of everybody, the next minute your knee is broken. But at least Mo got to go out doing something he loved: shagging. We should all be so lucky.
