In what seemingly is the longest retirement tour in the history of retirement tours, former Yankee closer Mariano Rivera stopped by Dick’s Sporting Goods in Manhattan to hand out some gifts to winners of some dopey contest.
Afterwards, he was asked what he would get certain guys for Christmas.
For Derek Jeter-“female doll so he would have a wife”
For Robinson Cano -“a piece of paper to sign and call a contract
For Joe Girardi “a bottle of hair dye”
For Bernie Williams…”a better guitar”
No word on A-Rod’s gift though. And Santa’s selection for A-Rod is still to be determined as the naughty list is being checked several times because of discrepancies.
