Re: Pete Roses cheap shot torwards West Virginia!
There are not all that many topics that I am more senstitive to than the ignorant stereotyping of West Virginians. I've heard and read such garbage most of my life. Like much of what Pete Rose has said and done during the wreck he has made of his life during the last few decades, his slur against West Virginians shouldn't have helped his cause in any way.
Rose joking about betting on the Reds everynight was also offensive, although probably at least honest in a way, as it is an indication that, even now, Pete Rose really believes that he didn't do anything wrong.
Hey Pete--my boyhood idol, the guy whose photo I had posted in my room as a kid, the guy I cheered so hard for for two decades--why don't you just shut your mouth and fade away!!!
