I suspect you're right, but I attribute that to Leno. A few months ago Pete was on Letterman, and he talked a lot about being baseball's greatest ambassador, and a lot about being in the HOF, and a lot about baseball and the current Reds. That's because it's the direction in which the host steered the conversation. Now Letterman of course grew up a baseball fan and a Reds fan to boot. He is also not a creepwad.
