Happy 70th birthday to disgraced baseball star Pete Rose.  “Charlie Hustle” is the all time major league baseball hits leader with 4,256.  There was no question that he’d be inducted into the baseball hall of fame, but then it was discovered that he was betting on baseball, including claims that he bet on his own team (when he was the manager of the Reds!)  As he’ll never be eligible for induction into the hall, Rose fills his time charging money for his autograph in vile places like Las Vegas.  So sad.

For the record, I always got his autograph for free back in his playing days.
