Mariano Rivera Would Like the Next Dance, Ladies

Presented with limited commercial interruption:


It’s pretty obvious that Mo Rivera is a straight-up classy dude. He’s also aged well, beginning as a novice starter, and morphing into an established closer, if you know what I mean. And this picture oozes machismo, no? ¬†Power khakis, power belt, power polo. Wind-up wrist watch. Oh-bay-bee.

So Mariano, I know your voice isn’t working so well. You had that surgery, and we’re all so happy you’re doing well. Allow me to play wing man here.

Any ladies want a dance with the relief Romeo? Step right up.

When he looked like that I would have said no. I’d be kicking myself today for that decision, however. Gangly! He’s improved with age.
