The current Judge on the daytime television program, “The People’s Court” Marilyn Milian was on hand before Monday night’s game to present Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera with an official Yankees gavel to use during his Kangaroo Court sessions. For those who are unfamiliar with Kangaroo Court, it may be because it has not been part of the Yankee clubhouse since Joe Torre became the manager in 1996. Major League Baseball teams have a kangaroo court to punish players for errors and other mistakes on the field. They also penalize for being late for a game/practice, not wearing proper attire to road games, or having a messy locker in the clubhouse. Fines are allotted, and at the end of the year, the money collected is typically given to charity.
Mariano Rivera seems like a natural choice, and Judge Milian was able to give him some pointers on how to tell if someone is lying. Nice source for advice, but I truly hope in Mo’s court he will never has to decide if one of his teammate’s ex-girlfriends is responsible to pay for half of a new refrigerator after breaking the first one during an argument.
