Now that he's retired, pitcher Mariano Rivera has no need for Metallica's "Enter the Sandman" to herald his entrance into Yankees stadium, so the band is now looking for a new gig in this latest laffer from the ESPN "This is SportsCenter" and Wieden & Kennedy, New York. The bandmembers sit twiddling their thumbs in the broadcaster's bland offices, entertaining stints with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and golfer John Daly --- only, in the end, to be rejected.

The spot debuted last night during Gilette's Home Run Derby.
