In an interview with Jim Gray for his Fox News special, "Talking to GOATs with Jim Gray," former Cincinnati Reds Pete Rose called betting on baseball - which Rose said he now does legally at casinos - was the only mistake he's ever made, and suggested as he has before that he doesn't think he'll be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame as long as he's alive.
"When I was betting on baseball when I got suspended, I was betting illegally on baseball. I make no more illegal bets in my life. That's why they have casinos," Rose told Gray.
MP Masse continues push for single-event sports betting
Local MP Brian Masse (NDP—Windsor-West) expressed confidence Wednesday that his effort to see single-event sports betting legalized in Canada is finally nearing reality. Due to a rotation of MPs who can introduce private members bills in Ottawa, last year Masse turned over proposed sports betting legislation to a member of the Conservative party who was near the top of the list. Bill C-315, which would see the criminal code altered to allow single-event sports betting, is now being lead by MP Kevin Waugh (C—Saskatoon-Grasswood), a former television sports journalist, with Masse remaining as a co-sponsor.
"I screwed up," Rose added. "I should have never (bet on baseball). That's the only mistake I've ever made in my life to be honest with you. And that's the biggest mistake. I would love to go to the Hall of Fame. Any player would. But as long as this heart is beating, I'm not going to go to the Hall of Fame."

In June, Rose told Joe, Lo & Dibs on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco that the pandemic was making it harder for someone to beat his all-time hits record and insisted that nobody will every pass him. In the same interview, Rose suggested that "greenies" - the amphetamines many players took during his playing career - did not have anywhere close to the impact that steroids did more recently.
