The Scoop: Mariano Rivera, NFL, Jim Leyland dancing, Christina Hendricks

The great Mariano Rivera will not be playing in October ever again

The sad, but historic end of an era came last night when the New York Yankees were eliminated from the postseason, thus enabling all of us from watching the great Mariano Rivera ever pitch in October again. We all were truly blessed with the opportunity to watch the greatest ever from his position put on a clinic for 19 seasons. (

Speaking of Mariano Rivera, he received gifts from just about every team in the Major Leagues during his farewell tour, but one thing he did not receive was a horse! Long-time Colorado Rockies player, Todd Helton, received a horse for his retirement present from the team. I really wish I was making this up. (NESN)

The NFL takes its act across the pond to London this Sunday. The game features two winless teams in the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings. A real barn burner for the London crowd. (

Speaking of London, the NFL plans on creating a franchise based out of London and Ryan Clark of the Pittsburgh Steelers doesn’t agree with this. Wait a minute, a Steelers player not agreeing with the NFL? That’s not the Pittsburgh Steelers I know! (Down and Distance)

Call me crazy, but when an NFL franchise has to lure you to buy tickets by offering you free booze, that may be a sign that your franchise sucks. Take one guess which NFL team tweeted this out from their official Twitter account. (TheBigLead)

In case you missed it, Jim Leyland busted out some moves after the Detroit Tigers won their third straight Central Division title. (Guyism)

The Scoop woman of the day is sexy Mad Men star, Christina Hendricks
