    I once heard, that when Pete Rose was closing in on the all time hits record, that a reporter asked him how many at bats he thought he needed to get the record, and Rose answered that he needed only the exact same number of at bats/attempts to beat the record. In other words, he beleived that he "could" succeed in EVERY at bat attempt, so if he needed 35 hits he felt he could do it in only 35 trips to the plate. The reporter was incredulous but Rose further explained that to NOT have that "I can do it" attitude was the key to failure in any endeavor. I've never forgotten that.

    The guy is one of the greatest baseball players of all time.

    Yet he admitted he bet on baseball. Even his own team.

    What to do?

    Put him in the Hall of Fame.....but not until he dies.

    Justice is served, on both sides.

    Good luck, Mr. Hustle.

    Time to end the ban. Reinstate Pete.
