Pete Rose to the Hall of Fame: "Don't Wait 'Til I'm Dead"
I wish I lived in Clifton, Ohio right now.
You see, this weekend marks the initial run of the documentary "4,192: The Crowning of the Hit King"...the story of Pete Rose's chase of the all-time hit record. I dig Rose, remember the countdown to the milestone vividly and would love to see 1985 baseball up on the big screen.
Oh...and I'd like to see "Charlie Hustle" in the Hall of Fame.
Recently, Cincinnati Enquirer reporter John Erardi caught up with Rose...talked about the movie, the current state of the Cincinnati Reds and, of course, Cooperstown.
"I would hope that I'd get a second chance. Don't wait 'til I'm dead," Rose told Erardi. "The Hall of Fame is for family and friends. I'd like to get up there in front of them."

And if you're one of the lucky to actually be near Clifton this week, you can check out the Esquire Theatre and showtimes for "4192" HERE...then let me know how the movie is.
