Musical Interlude: Enter Sandman (1991)

Everyone knows this Metallica classic by heart, just about. "Enter Sandman" was the 1st single off the band's self-titled 1991 album, otherwise known as the "Black Album" because of the color of the cover. Uploaded by MetallicaTV:

Of course, it's also closely associated with a certain newly retired pitcher, who got the spotlight to himself when he entered the All-Star Game in July:

And as if that wasn't enough, Metallica showed up at Yankee Stadium 8 days ago to personally honor Mariano Rivera:

The only other sports figure---well, close to it, anyway---with whom "Enter Sandman" is associated is the pro wrestler known as The Sandman. The next time they play "Enter Sandman" at Yankee Stadium will be at Rivera's 1st Old Timer's Day appearance. Other than that, expect it to play in Cooperstown in 2018.......
