I’m not going to bother with a lot of build up. Below is the transcript of today’s Dan Patrick radio show. He interviews Pete Rose, who subsequently admits betting on his own team — every night!
From “The Dan Patrick Show”:
Pete Rose – I bet on my team every night. OK. I didn’t bet on my team four nights a week. So I wasn’t sending a signal out that I’m not going to use my closer of Friday night or Saturday night, and I was wrong.
Keith Olbermann – Do you realize how strange this is? Now you’re telling me more than we thought. Our roles are reversed here.
Pete Rose – If you follow the Dowd Report, that’s what Paul Janszen said and he was absolutely right.
Dan Patrick – You bet on the Reds every night?
Pete Rose – Yeah, I bet on the Reds. I bet on my team to win every night because I loved my team and I believed in my team. You know, I was wrong, but I believe in my team. I had so much confidence in my team and what did that make me do? I did everything in my power every night to win that game.
