(1) PETE ROSE APPARENTLY IS GETTING HIS OWN REALITY SHOW. Here are the details. I’d totally watch it if it was Pete sitting at a table with one of those colored visors on and sheets of stats strewn across the table as he handicaps the evening’s baseball games and makes wagers. Alas, that doesn’t seem to be the theme. The working title: “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project.” Says Rose: “We’re just a normal family with 4,200 hits.” Don’t forget to pay your taxes on the royalties, Pete.
(2) CARL EDWARDS HAS A NEW CREW CHIEF. Bob Osborne has been replaced by Chad Norris as crew chief for Carl Edwards in the Roush Fenway Racing Sprint Cup entry. Osborne, who’s leaving because of undisclosed health reasons, will remain with the organization as a senior member of the organization’s management team and steering committee. More details here.
(3) KELVIN JACKSON IS OUT AS MARTINSVILLE BOYS BASKETBALL COACH. Robert Anderson has the details here. “All I know is they’re not going to recommend that I be the coach next year,” Jackson said. “I guess they just want to go in a different direction. We had had some discussions prior to this, and it wasn’t a surprise.”

NAME THAT TUNE
Afternoon in the homeroom
They’re about to let you go
And the locker slam
On the plan you had tonight
You’ve been messin’ around with a boyfriend
Maybe better left alone
There’s a wise guy that you know
Could put you right
In the lot the boy that’s idling by
Doesn’t rev your heart
‘Cause it’s only lonely spots
He shares with you
And long halls and the gray walls
Are gonna split apart
Believe it or not
There’s life after high school
