Pete Rose probably still has a gambling problem

Why Pete Rose as an Expo? I dunno. Everyone forgets about that and I like to remember that kind of random garbage. Got his 4000th hit while playing for Montreal! Anyway:

Back when he was suspended from baseball, Pete Rose admitted to having a gambling addiction and went through counseling.  You’ll be shocked to learn that it didn’t take.  Check out this post and pic from a guy named Paneech, who walked by a table at Caesar’s where Pete Rose was signing autographs while glued to a TV feed of horse races. According to Paneech, the Hit King was basically ignoring fans getting autographs and filled out betting slips in between customers.

Yeah, that stuff I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Rose being a Reds Ambassador? I’m prepared to admit that I may be wrong on that score.

(thanks to reader TBZ for the heads up)

    Basically the HOF is a big lie without his ugly mug in it. Just as it would be without Bonds in it. Who turned out to be a big cheat. Put them in with a * next to them. one says banned for life for gambling, one says he used drugs that more than likely effected his numbers to the +. Hey if you want to report facts, it is what it is. You can’t just ignore the fact that’s he’s one of the best hitters ever.
