WHY IS PETE ROSE COMMENTING ON ILLEGAL DRUG USE?
Let’s talk cheating in baseball…time to bring on poor ole Pete Rose. Absolute nonsense. Dennis Miller with an eye on ratings had Pete on his Versus show to comment on the Mitchell Report and in particular Roger Clemens. After all, who knows a cheater better than a cheater. But in typical Pete fashion, Rose takes his new ridiculous stance…”I’m not as bad as these guys!!!!”
“I never thought anybody would make me look like an altar boy,” Rose said. “I’ve been suspended 18 years for betting on my own team to win,” he added. “I was wrong … but these guys today, if the allegations are true, they’re making a mockery of the game.”
Altar boy? Pete’s gambling was every bit as bad as anything the PED users did. Clemens can only match Rose if he lies for the next 18 years and implies that anyone who questions him is morally bankrupt.
Rose makes me laugh. His defense for the longest time had been…it’s my word against those of shady characters like Paul Janzsen and Tommy Giosa. Now I believe the Clemens source in the Mitchell Report, Brian McNamee….but isn’t a bit hypocritical for Pete to accept McNamee’s stories but tell us his shady friends aren’t believable?
Does Rose really want people to dig deeper and find out if he ever used steroids or illegal drugs? When Rose’s latest comments came down yesterday, I recalled an interview we did with his buddy Giosa in February of 2005. We were at the Daytona 500 and it just so happened Giosa works at a strip club where we were doing the show.
Should we take Giosa on his word?
And if so, does Rose have any room to ever comment on drug use?
GIOSA SAYS ROSE HAD HIS OWN DRUG ISSUES:
PETE LIKED HIS AMPHETAMINES:
SPEAKING OF CHEATING AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCING:
Rose is one of my all-time favorite talk topics. His arrogance and lying always amazed me. He constantly trumpeted the theme that he wasn’t a gambler and didn’t do the things that were clearly backed up by tons of evidence in Dowd Report.
As a resident of Vegas and a former employee of SportsFan Radio Network, I saw his degenerate gambling ways up close in the mid-90’s. And you could line up hundreds of people to tell you horrible Pete gambling stories.Explore posts in the same categories: Baseball
