Back in ’88 I had just gotten out of college and went down to Riverfront quite a bit. We’d usually hit Flanagan’s after the game just to “let the traffic clear out”.
Got to meet Ron Robinson one night and shake his hand; nice guy. Ran into Chris Sabo more than once and he was always great. One incident that I’ll never forget was when the Pete Rose story first broke and we were in the bar after the game. The place was pretty empty and Sabo was holding court with about 4 or 5 guys, myself included. Someone asked him about Pete and Sabo says, “I know Pete. Pete’s an a-hole. He’s guilty.”
