And Now, a Little Gambling Irony from Pete Rose

The Cincinnati Reds wanted to honor Pete “Banned for Gambling” Rose on the 25th anniversary of the day he became baseball’s all-time hit leader.  They even got special permission from Major League Baseball to do so.

Problem: Pete can’t make it that day because of a commitment to a casino.
