Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
The New York Times Magazine has a long article about Mariano Rivera. No shocking revelations, but it's a nice tribute.
What I found really cool was the accompanying multimedia piece:
How Mariano Rivera Dominates Hitters
I found it a very good use of computer graphics, showing how Mo throws his cutter, why it's so deceptive, and how good his control is. I tend not to notice the grip on the ball or how it's spinning, so it's nice to see it laid out in simple terms.
