saturday song - don't stop relievin'

for this week's saturday song, i share with you a parody of a journey song.  in case you have no idea what this is about, mariano rivera, who is arguably the greatest closer of all time, and has been the yankees regular closer since 1997, is the subject of this song/video.  this year he very unfortunately hurt his knee before a game while shagging fly balls during batting practice.  he had previously hinted that this seaason would be his last, but now that he is out for this year, he has said he will make a comeback. 

mo, as he is called, has always been a fan favorite, and this video reflects the desire among yankee fans that he come back and keep pitching.  it is done with a smile, with good humor, and with more quality than you might expect.  it's an enjoyable watch, and i imagine that mariano himself got to see it and got a good chuckle out of it.  enjoy!
