Pete Rose comes to mind, but I would like to comment on OJ.
I was a little girl when he tore up the field in college, and a young teenager when he was in the INFL, but I so admired him.
I also saw his picture yesterday, and it broke my heart.
There is a book you need to read, it is called "OJ is Innocent, and I can Prove it." It was written by William Dear
