The garbage pail of my mind still remembers

this topical (timely!) song from 1989, which I heard on The Morning Zoo with Don and Mike and which I probably still have on tape somewhere:

What's the odds on the ballgame?
Who will cover his bets?
Pete sold his trophies and red Corvette
Mortgaged his house just to stay out of debt
If he made a bet on his own team
Say "goodbye, Hall of Fame"
So Pete, Rose, say it ain't so
At the old ball game!

Remembering this also makes me glad that, by all signs (so far), I don't have a gambling problem. Other than I still, the few times I've done it, don't do it very well...
