Must-click link: An insanely extended interview with Pete Rose


Yahoo!’s Dave Brown took his Answer Man alter ego to Vegas and he talked with Pete Rose … forever.  It was a great interview, though.  Topics ranging from Game 6 of the 2011 World Series vs. Game 6 of the 1975 World Series, gambling, his bannination from baseball and, of course, Milk Duds.

Just read it.

Oh, and this is fun:

PR: Well, we didn’t look at greenies as greenies. Greenies were nothing more than diet pills. They’d curb your appetite. Greenies is false hope. Amphetamines. They don’t help you hit the ball any further or harder. They don’t help you do anything.

DB: Wake you up?

PR: Well, it’s like this (Rose holds up a cup of coffee). Caffeine. That’s all it is.

Take that … um, whoever feels like arguing about Pete Rose and drugs all at once. Because that won’t even create any discussion, will it?
