In response to andrewmitch's comment:
Your not thrilled to see him retire? I am confused - do you enjoy watching him beat the Sox? I am sorry but I am not quite following the logic here.
They are mutually exclusive items - The Sox and Rivera......
No, Mitch, you're definitely not following the logic.
Of course I don't like seeing Rivera beat the Sox. As I said, I've prefaced his name with many a profanity over the years. But in additon to being a Sox fan, I'm also a baseball fan. Which means I actually like and admire players from other teams. Yes, including the dreaded Yankees.
Plus, as has been well documented, the Sox have had more success off Rivera than any other team.
