    Fun Trivial Factoid

    Today I read an oral history of the movie Airplane, and was surprised to find out that the original choice for the role of Murdock was none other than Pete Rose! However, the movie's shooting schedule got pushed back to summer, so Pete was unavailable and the producers went with Kareem instead.

    Kareem did a great job in the part; it's hard to imagine Pete doing as well...but who knows?

    Wonder what the little kid would have needled Rose about. He bugs Kareem about weak defense and not trying his fullest until the playoffs.

    Airplane came out in 1980, if it had come out in 1981 they could have joked about Pete's 1980 season, but in 1980 the best bet would be Pete was a 1b with 4 HR's in 609 ABs in 1979
