OT - Friday Open Thread - Down Goes Rivera Edition

If this is the end for Mariano Rivera, even Yankee-haters will admit, this is not the way we wanted to see him go out. Mariano Rivera, despite spending his entire career for the most hated organization in sports, was probably one of the more likable guys in baseball.

3. What is your worst sports injury?

4. What was the most devastating injury in Royals history?
