Thought you Reds fans might like to see a few pics from a Pete Rose autogrpah signing. Being there were about 250 people there....he was very friendly and chatted with everybody. The part I thought was the best was when young kids would come through the line he would stop and REALLY talk to them.

I don't know how you guys feel about this as Reds fans, but as a Cardinals fan I cannot for the life of me figure out why they would allow McGwire to be considered for the HOF but not Pete Rose. What McGwire (et al) did was significantly worse for the game... I would be extremely annoyed if I was a Reds' fan!

There was an artice in indy paper when he came to town. Here is what Pete had to say about it: (you can find the article here: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011107270331)

Q: Through the years, polls show most people want you at least to be elected to the Hall of Fame. Have you found any difference from the fans since you admitted you bet on baseball?

A: I think because of other things (steroid scandals) that happened in baseball, the poll increases every year. I think a lot of people that were negative towards me think "Well, enough is enough. Twenty-one years is enough suspension for anyone." That's just the things I read and things I hear. It's not me saying that, it's the experts. I'm getting more favoritism from guys in the media.

He should be in the hall of fame. If Bond's ever makes it...God help us all!!
