Pete Rose

We definitely have too much hero worshiping going on as far as sports stars are concerned. Really, how did they help humanity? They play games for $$$ and fame and every vice that comes with them. They promote our false pride. Granted, there are good people in sports, but we as general public tend to NOT care about anything except that they're heroes simply because they can throw a ball or jump high. We ridicule someone like Michael Jackson to no end, and chide entertainers for their wicked ways (how many jokes have we heard about Roy Horn?), but we turn a blind eye to sports stars' bad or even criminal behaviors. You turn on TV and these sportscasters are speaking of their stars like they were Gods.

It boggles my mind that Pete Rose has a road named after him but Fred Rogers doesn't.
