To have everything going in your favor until the last moment. Derived from the 2007-2008 season New England Patriots whose quest for a perfect season was derailed by the New York Giants in the Superbowl XLII.
I had an 18-1 bowling game last night, I was making all those strikes until I made a gutterball at the final round.
Tokyo Mew Mew (–|¾©¥ß¥å¥¦¥ß¥å¥¦ T¨ky¨ My¨± My¨±), also known as Mew Mew Power, is a sh¨jo (girl-oriented) manga and anime series, created by illustrator Mia Ikumi and writer Reiko Yoshida.
The manga series has been published in the Nakayoshi sh¨jo monthly manga magazine in 2001, and has also been collected in the tank¨bon (graphic novel) form, published by Kodansha. An English translation of the manga has been published in North America by TOKYOPOP, and it was published in English in Singapore by Chuang Yi. There is also a sequel series entitled Tokyo Mew Mew ¨¤ la Mode. The anime was licensed in North America by 4Kids Entertainment as Mew Mew Power.
A girl called Ichigo Momomiya and four other girls (Mint Aizawa, Lettuce Midorikawa, Pudding Fong, and Zakuro Fujiwara) have their DNA mysteriously combined with the DNA of endangered animals. Gaining special abilities and a different appearance, they later find out that they have been chosen to protect Earth from the aliens: Kish, Tart, Pie, and the mysterious Deep Blue, who have the power to control aliens which infect animals, turning their hosts into monsters called Chimera Anima (Kirema Anima in the North American manga).
At the same time, these five girls must also work at the Caf¨¦ Mew Mew as waitresses. To make things more dificult for Ichigo, she must also deal with finding out whether her boyfriend, Masaya Aoyama, likes her or knows she is a Mew Mew. She is also pursued by two other boys, Ryou Shirogane, and the alien Kish.
Tokyo Mew Mew is okay I had to admit.
a relief pitcher for the New York Yankees. Born in Panama City, Panama, his rookie season in the Major Leagues was 1995, in which he made a limited number of appearances. In 1996, he served primarily as a set-up man for the closer John Wetteland. During that season, if the Yankees were leading after six innings, they were nearly assured of victory due to the stellar pitching of both relievers. Despite playing in a position that rarely gets respect, Rivera still managed to come in third for the Cy Young voting, behind twenty-game winners Pat Hentgen and teammate Andy Pettitte, respectively.
When Wetteland left the team following that season (in which they won the World Series), Rivera became the Yankees' closer and has remained so ever since. He has been perhaps the most consistent, dependable relief pitcher in the Major Leagues during his tenure as a closer for the Yankees. Rivera has been especially overpowering in the postseason, in which his lifetime earned run average, under 1 run per nine innings pitched, is among the best ever. His contribution to the general success of the Yankees since 1996, including four World Series championships, has been significant. However, in recent years his postseason performance has been a little less consistent, particularly in the 2001 World Series loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks and the infamous 2004 playoff collapse against the Boston Red Sox. His troubles with the Red Sox (although he continues to dominate against other teams) have continued, and during his introduction at the Red Sox opening day, he was lampooned with a standing ovation while his teammates were booed. To his credit, Rivera took the treatment with good humor and tipped his hat to the Red Sox fans.
Rivera has won the Rolaids Relief Man of the Year Award three times, in 1999, 2001, and 2004. He donated his 2001 trophy to the New York City Fire Department. It is on permanent display at the FDNY's Brooklyn headquarters. He won the World Series MVP Award in 1999, when which the Yankees swept the Atlanta Braves in four games and Rivera earned two saves.
Rivera's demeanor on the mound is very serious. His best pitches are his four-seam fastball and his cutter, which has been called the best pitch in baseball for a long time. On a per-batter basis, he probably breaks more bats than any other current pitcher, caused by jamming them with the fastball.
As Rivera enters a game in Yankee Stadium, the song "Enter Sandman" by Metallica is played on the loudspeaker system.
His uniform number is 42, which has been retired by all Major League Baseball teams since 1997 in honor of Jackie Robinson. However, Rivera is permitted to use the number due to a grandfather clause.
Enter the Sandman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
