Yes, yes, this is another post about New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera being honored in this, his farewell season. Mo has been celebrated again and again, but you know what? This video Major League Baseball released Wednesday is pretty cool. It's worth your 30 seconds, even if you've consumed every other Rivera tribute out there already.

MLB also took out a newspaper ad, which will run in Thursday's USA Today, New York Daily News, New York Post and Metro NY. It coincides with Rivera's final Yankees home game, which is Thursday night. Check out the ad below. Bud Selig signed it and everything. We hope Bud still has another gift left for Mariano. Nobody has given him a monogrammed towels yet during his "farewell tour."

For those of you utterly tired of Mariano Rivera celebrations, you can at least be happy that you're not going to have to deal with it in the postseason. Unless something really, really improbable happens these last few days and the Yankees sneak into the playoffs.
