CLEVELAND INDIANS PRESENT MARIANO RIVERA WITH A GOLD RECORD OF "ENTER SANDMAN"

May 13th 2013 - Right down the street from the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the Cleveland Indians organization presented New York Yankees reliever Mariano Rivera with a Gold Record of Metallica's "Enter Sandman".  The retirement gift was given to Rivera on his farewell season with the Bronx Bombers during today's daytime doubleheader.

Since 1999 in the Bronx: the opening riff on James Hetfield's guitar, the E-minor distorted by a wah-wah pedal at Kirk Hammett's foot, the bass carried by Jason Newsted, and then Ulrich hard and fast on the drums...the result has typically been a win for the Bombers at Yankee Stadium as Mo shuts em down.

"Say your prayers little one,
Don't forget my son,
To include everyone,
I tuck you in,
Warm within,
Keep you free from sin,
‘Til the Sandman he comes."

"Enter Sandman."

Enter Mariano Rivera.

"Sleep with one eye open."

Well it looks like it will just be 2 companies for football cards next year and Topps is not one of them! What do you think?
