I’m Worried About Pete Rose

16 Apr

April 16, 2015

Here’s the increasingly doughy Pete Rose in his latest commercial.

I’m worried. Why can’t Pete be in the hall? Is he going to get lost? Wander upstairs? Get attacked by ninjas?

Is he going to get confused by all that white carpet? Take batting practice and break a lamp? Slip into the Twilight Zone?

OK, before you start thinking I don’t get it, I know very well that it is a play on Pete not being allowed in the Hall of Fame. (And rightly so. That’s what he gets for picking a fight with Bud Harrelson in the 73 NLCS.) But this commercial is so stupid! He’s not allowed in the hallway in his own home?

Is this an indication that Pete has dementia? Early onset Alzheimer’s? Does Pete need constant supervision? Is Pete liable to end up lost in the backyard?

I’m worried about Pete Rose.

    I was more bothered by Rob Lowe in all those Direct TV commercials. They WERE NOT proud ” high moments ” in television history. An actor with that many personalities should undergo serious therapy – maybe even revive the age of trepanation. Or perhaps some ECT therapy.

      He may be a danger to himself.

        I prefer the new DirectTV spots with this blonde on a horse riding along the beach.

        This building changed cable providers from ComCast to DirectTV, the service is better, the pickings are pretty scanty. I only have a handful of programs I like to watch regularly anyway. Losing BBC America – Ouch.

          I haven’t seen them yet, but you had me at blonde.

          I don’t have ComCast but I’ve heard bad things about it. I have Cablevision, which is no great shakes, believe me. My brother also has Cablevision but where he lives the packages are different than where I live so while I get BBCA, he doesn’t get it on a similarly priced level and would have to pay extra. However, through some problem he had with Cablevision, he got them to give him BBCA free for 6 months.

            I could probably get most of these on Netflix or Hulu Plus, but I’m on a budge – budge…… I just can’t say ” Budget ” straight out w/out a knot forming in my gut.
            Here, everyone gets the Direct TV basic. ” You’ll get it & like it “. Damn Commies ! Damn pinkos !

              At least we aren’t watching old Soviet era TV shows.
