I am not a huge Pete Rose fan, but I am a fan of baseball.
Pete Rose, one of the greats of the game, is banned from the Hall of Fame for gambling.
Darryl Strawberry gets arrested for soliciting a prostitute and being in possesion of cocaine immediately after he picked up an award for being a Christian role model, and he gets a suspension, hangs out at Yankee’s camp in Florida, and gets to be in the MLB playoffs in the same year.
I know the MLB rules state that gambling hurts the integrity of the game, but doesn’t being a coke-head and a philanderer hurt the games integrity too?
Gambling is legal all over the place now while cocaine and prostitution (except Neveda) isn’t.
Let’s wake up here people and take a look at fair treatment for moral infractions.
As long as my bottle opener is Y2K compliant, I’ll be okay.
