Mariano Rivera Throws His Last Pitch At Yankee Stadium And Makes An Emotional Exit! Watch HERE!!

Filed under: ZportzSad SadBaseball

mariano rivera plays his final game at yankee stadium

We know there's no crying in baseball, but we'll make an exception here!

Last night, the New York Yankees played their final home game of the season, which meant it was the fans' last chance to see their beloved closer Mariano Rivera before he retires!

Unfortunately, the Bronx Bombers were losing 0-4 to the Tampa Bay Rays, so there was no chance of a save opportunity. But they still decided to send Mo into the game to get the exit he deserves!

As usual, he completely shut down all four batters he faced before he was eventually pulled out of the game. However, instead of sending manager Joe Girardi to the mound, his longtime teammates Andy Pettitte and Derek Jeter made the pitching change!

Cue the waterworks, people!!

To say it was an emotional exit would be an understatement, as Mariano burst into tears as he was greeted by his teammates and got a much deserved standing ovation from the crowd!!

Not only will Mo go down as one of the best closers of all time and a 5-time Wold Series champ, but he'll always be remembered for being a class act on and off the field!

So long, Mariano! The game wont be the same without you!

Ch-ch-check out the emotional send off …AFTER THE JUMP!!!!

usain bolt releases autobiography faster than lightening

With Usain Bolt recently announcing that he would be retiring after to 2016 Olympics in Rio, he's already looking at what lies ahead.

And it looks like he might have a future as a writer!

The Olympic gold-medalist just wrapped up his very appropriately named autobiography, Faster Than Lightning!

Get it?? Because he's fast and his last name is Bolt….

Anywho, the fastest man on the planet made his way to a Selfridges in London for a book signing, and of course he just had to strike a pose or two or seven!! LOLz!

Congrats, Usain!

Filed under: InspirationJack NicholsonBasketballShaq

shaq jack nicholson kiss retire jersey lakers ceremony

If somebody started to tell us that Shaq isn't actually kissing Jack Nicholson on the head, we would totally rock their jaw mid-sentence to keep the dream alive!

We mean, just look how magical that picture is (above)!!

Getting your number and jersey retired is one thing, but being able to kiss a legend on the top of his head IS A WHOLE 'NOTHER GAME!! LOLz!

We're just kidding about rocking jaws, we'd never punch someone for that. We would plug our ears and yell, though! Ha!

Shaq was joined by ex Lakers coach Phil Jackson, Jeanie Buss, his mother, his children, and Jack at his jersey retirement ceremony held at the Staples Center. We're so proud of you, Shaq!

Congrats!

We've been watching closely as Morrissey's health seems to be getting worse and worse with each new story of him being hospitalized and canceling shows. We thought maybe it was just a rough period. We were wrong.

He has even been warned that he should retire from music!

After axing his North American tour just a few days ago, we've finally heard the extent of what's going on.

Barbara Walters May Be Walking Away From The View With Joy And Elisabeth!

barbara the view retire

Down they go, like dominos!

Following the news that Joy Behar - and possibly Elisabeth Hasselbeck - will be departing The View this summer (guess which one by choice?) it appears that one more lady on the ABC gab-fest may not be sticking around much longer!

And sadly, they've saved the best for last!

According to network insiders, the creator and executive producer, Barbara Walters, is seriously considering throwing in her hosting duties, and as disappointed as we are to hear it, we can't say we blame her!

She's 83, after all!

And while she's normally at the top of her game even at that age, she's been pretty sick lately, only having just re-joined the panel this week after recovering from her January fall and battling the chicken pox!

With two castmembers already on their way out

Toni Braxton Is DONE With Music! Reveals Her "Heart Just Isn't In It" Anymore!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteToni BraxtonHealth

Wow! Talk about the need to Unbreak My Heart!

Sorry!

We just couldn't resist…even though this revelation is actually quite sad!

There's no disputing that Toni Braxton has had a rough few years, with multiple lawsuits and most recently, a very serious, lupus-related health scare, but the singer turned reality starlet has not let herself get bogged down in the negativity… and is even preparing for the premiere of her first acting-turn in the upcoming Lifetime original movie, Twist of Faith!

However, it seems as though all of her personal problems may have inadvertently rubbed off on the career for which she's most recognizable - as a recording artist - as she revealed this morning on Good Morning America that she just isn't feeling music the way she used to!

Ch-ch-check out her full comments (above)!

We're not gonna lie, gurl: this is pretty
