All class from this guy:

I hate the Yankees, but there are a handful of guys I respect on that team and Rivera's certainly one of them. He just goes about his business. I love that he's going to do things like this in every road ballpark he visits this season.

What he has done with effectively one pitch his entire career is just incredible.

Thought this was a cool story.

Anyone that stays with one team especially as long as he has gets a thumbs up. Not that he hasn't also been everything else noted.
