NYC Mayor deBlasio spots Mariano Rivera in restaurant, takes cell phone photo to show his son-NY Post

10/1/14, "Bill de Blasio star struck when he met Mariano Rivera," NY Post, Emily Smith

"New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio jokingly asked legendary Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera to help him get a better grip on things after a chance meeting Tuesday night.

De Blasio was dining at West 56th Street restaurant Prime Grill with Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver when he spotted Mo across the room.

A diner tells us, “De Blasio was so surprised to see Mariano, he got up fast, handed his bodyguard his phone to take a picture and told Mariano how much he admires him.” The source added, “He joked to Mariano, ‘You need to teach me how to keep a good grip so items don’t fall out of my hands.'”

They spent 10 minutes chatting. He told Shelly, “I can’t wait until I show my son [Dante] the picture.”" image from NY Post
