Pete Rose Should Be In The Hall

Pete Rose has a reality show on TLC. I expected a train wreck. As you can see from the title of this entry it is anything but.

Rose speaks without a filter. I believe he’s truly repentant for his gambling. He should be judged on his unquestioned excellence as a player.

“If you give me a second chance, I won’t need a third,” he said early on.

The show is great. His fiancee (though the show is called “Hits and Mrs.”) is a beautiful Korean-American, younger than some of Rose’s children. Her augmented breasts are an oft visited topic.

They are a total mismatch, yet they’re perfect for each other. I believe the relationship is complex and real.

I’ve read a few negative reviews. I disagree. I’ll watch the season–six episodes.
