    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.

    Even as an adult, I didn't need to know that Pete had a good look at DiMaggio's off-field tools.

    He said Pete was the type of guy who knocked the books out of your hands in the hallway.
    My mom went to high school with Pete. She says similar things.

    You just confirmed it from where I sit.

    I know a guy who worked on Airborn, said it was a joke movie, part of the rollerblade chase intercuts part of Cincinnati with part of Malibu, it's quite the gaffe.
    I misunderstood what you said WOY.....

    It is a stupid movie, but it does show you just where Pete Rose grew up. Funny, HBO has shown it over and over again for the last couple of months.

    The shots in it from inside good ole West Hi are fraught with memories.....Just glad they didn't include scenes from any Elder - West Hi football games.....ouch!

    Renaming "Pete Rose Way" would get my support. How about "Sparky Anderson Avenue" or "Johnny Bench Boulevard" or "Tony Perez Parkway"?

    What he did was inappropriate in front of children; but Pete has always been this way. It's called "environment". He's a clone of his Dad, and his Mom was pretty much a "free spirit" who wasn't afraid to tell it like it is.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    A caller earlier said she and her son was there and this story is really making something out of nothing.

    She said it wasn't that big of a deal.


    Who knows? I've heard both sides...

    I heard that caller, but that is the same woman who's son will be a complete "Pete Rose" in school.

    The one point I agreed with that she said was: "People knew he was going to speak there." And if you know him at all, he's a moron.

    Nah.. it's a Disney Kids movie, not stupid...just cheap.. like most live action Disney films (North Avenue Irregulars anyone?) my friend said it was low budget, and that plus getting to film in his home town was the reason he took it... but he said it was not his usual big ticket Hollywood paycheck.

    "Pete (Rose) doesn't run with celebrities and he can't stand the phonies. His big buddy in LA ain't Sinatra, it's a funny old groundskeeper."

    He's just Pete. Too bad he has no internal censor.
