Mariano Rivera

Mariano Rivera




It is not every day you get to meet one of your all time heroes,  so what a night I had this past Monday when I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Mariano Rivera from the New York Yankees.  He is truly a legend in his own time and at the age of forty, he is coming off one of his strongest seasons (along with collecting another championship ring!).

The organized event was held at his restaurant, Mo’s, in New Rochelle, NY and I was fortunate enough to be invited by a very dear friend of mine.  I learned that as a teenager, Mariano wanted to play professional soccer not baseball!  As he got older he realized he had something special and then he focused on baseball.  And how special he is!  He has over 500 saves and I believe if it weren’t for him, the Yankees would not have won five championships in the last fourteen years.  He is a deeply religious person  with strong convictions and a close family.

It was such a special evening and I would recommend if you ever have an opportunity to meet him, do it!  I would not recommend the restaurant if he wasn’t present though.
