Nice. Real nice.

Sun Deckers beat us to this topic by a few hours.
Maybe Pete Jr. should save this article to show his future kids someday. It will help them understand why they don't get to visit their grandpa more often.
They were talking about this a few hours ago on an Astros board, too.
Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.

That's telling it like it is
Pete's rehabilitation is doing wonders. He may get into the HOF by 2500.
I met a guy once who went to school with Pete.He told them winning is everything and if you get second place you're just losers."
He said Pete was the type of guy who knocked the books out of your hands in the hallway.
If that was someone I didnt know, I would swear the guy is either drunk or a complete ass.
Sad thing is anyone who knows Pete knows he doesnt drink!!!

Before you continue with this tripe, check your facts.
BTW, there is a movie called Airbourne......about, believe it or not, rollerblade skating. It was filmed at Western Hills.....rent it some time.
"Is there a problem officers?"
Pete grew up down in Riverside, which has always been a tough part of town. When I was a kid, the kids from down there always beat us in baseball and my guess is that they needed it more than we did. If we lost, we went to King Kwik to get Icees. If they lost, they got screamed at (which I witnessed) or worse (which I feared was a beating). His dad was notoriously hard and I'm sure he was raised with some pretty tough lessons.
The fact that his language is geared towards the sports stag audience is also pretty well known and I think it's a pretty dumb idea to invite him to speak to kids.
