Lance Armstrong is charged with doping. Focus: Anyone in your life, or who influenced you, who fell from grace? Probably this is going to lean more towards the sporting realm, but the focus is wide open. The two that jump out at me are the entire Penn State coaching staff, and Pete Rose. JoePa should've gone down as the finest coach in the history of anything. Roads and stadiums should have been built in his honour. Instead, because of a completely idiotic decision to circle the wagons, he died without any fanfare and everyone's trying to forget what happened during his reign. HBO had a special on Derek Jeter's 3000th hit last week. He's probably the finest example of a gentleman role model in the professional athlete realm. It got me thinking, though, who has the most hits ever? Well, it turns out that it was Pete Rose. I'd always known that he was a liar and a disgrace (his fall happened before I ever watched MLB), but I had no idea until after I watched Derek Jeter that Pete Rose was The Best Ever. He holds almost every record, and not by a small measure. Permanently disqualified from the Hall of Fame, betting on his own team, bah. Way to ruin a perfect career with stupidity.
