    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.

    Pete's rehabilitation is doing wonders. He may get into the HOF by 2500.

    He told them winning is everything and if you get second place you're just losers."
    I met a guy once who went to school with Pete.

    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!!!

    Hey WOY, guess what.....I graduated from Western Hills High School in 1973. My four older brothers also did as well as my father-in-law. My eldest brother DID go to school with Peter Edward....and Rose was a less-than-model student.

    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.

    What is this rant about???? Completely unwarranted. All he said is that he used to knock books out of kids hands, and you agreed he was a "less-than-model student." Whats your beef???

    Pete must've given swirlies and made fun of "band geeks" rather than slamming books.

    I grew up in Delhi, just above the hill from where Pete grew up. I've probably met and talked to about fifty people who knew Pete when he was growing up. The consensus is that he was just a dumb kid who had a singular desire to play baseball. The mentality he had on the field- play to win, be aggressive- was pretty much the way he was off the field. He was tough, bullying, hard as nails and really didn't have a care about anyone or anything that was not associated with baseball.

    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.
