I get all the Mariano Rivera love, but this is weird:
Mets have asked Mariano Rivera to throw tonight’s ceremonial first pitch at Citi Field. He said he’d be honored to do it.

It’s fun and I don’t care — personally I hope Fred Wilpon was present at the christening of Chipper Jones’ kid Shea — but I feel like there are a lot of Mets fans who are gonna be kinda irked that the guy who is likely going to close out tonight’s Mets loss will be throwing out the first pitch too.
