Pete Rise Is Born

Pete Rise! The accidental genius of auto-correct or inspired creation? It matters not. For Pete Rise now walks among us.

“Pete Rose” of course embodies the full complement of what it means to be Pete Rose — the brilliance afield, the post-1984 humiliations afield, the gambling, the chronic dishonesty, the “soft sociopathy” native to his character, the fierce loyalists he inspired. Pete Rose, that is to say, is a mixed bag.

But Pete Rise? Pete Rise can be considered a subset of Pete Rose — a subset most pleasing, it turns out. Pete Rise was both cocksure and sure of cock …

    I think the most annoying part of this whole Biogenesis thing are these people who use it as an argument to either say “ban everyone” or “bring Pete Rose back”.

    Guy bet on baseball and agreed to the punishment.

    On the other hand, all Pete Rise did was have sex with three female travel agents in between the third and fourth innings of his final World Series before wrestling a bear who was wrestling Kyle Farnsworth. He beat both.

        A minor caveat in that nobody present actually affirmed the said notion, but it still can be said that Pete Rise most probably had sex with three travel agents of a female variety

  8. My best friend’s mother grew up in Cincinnati and once hooked up with Peter whilst living at home during her post-freshman summer at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College.

    Her father, a large Peter supporter, took this photo the morning after Peter and said nubile hustled all about her nubilic base paths:

    really, though, is there anyone in the world whose homepage isn’t the google image search for Pete Rose?

    I’m sorry if I’ve ruined your guys’ personal internet :/
