On Friday, Gray Line introduced another mobile monument in honor of New York Yankees hometown hero Mariano Rivera. The bus was permanently emblazoned with a giant photo of Rivera and included a personal seat for the iconic Yankee closer. Now when tourists come to New York they can ride around town in the ubiquitous bus that is a shrine to Rivera, not that Mo's image isn't all over Manhattan these days already.
As always, Rivera —who has collected a huge pile of memorable swag on his farewell tour — was his usual gracious self in accepting the honor.
"Thank you to Gray Line for a bus like this. It's wonderful. It is great for me and my family," he said. "And it will be great to see myself on one of these things!"
