Incidentally, one of my co-workers was just telling me a couple days ago about a negative interaction he had with Pete Rose in Vegas last week. Can you share? Sorry, Cincy fans, I've always hated him. Nothing exciting. He was in a memorabilia shop and wouldn't so much as speak to anybody without th...
