The Queen City Invention Queen met The legendary, The all time Hit King, The Pete Rose himself a few days ago, and what an honor and a pleasure it was! Growing up when I did in Cincinnati with the Big Red Machine ruling professional baseball, with Pete Rose at its helm, Pete was The face of baseball for us young Reds fans!
After a brief introduction, I told Pete what was in my heart, I told him, “You are the reason that I love baseball!” And he is. Pete’s is the first face that comes to my memory when I think of professional baseball. The Queen City isn’t exactly considered a star studded locale, and for such talented, amazing men such as Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, and Joe Morgan to call Cincinnati home, makes us neighbors proud! We’re also a very genuine, caring, and forgiving people, and we are going to know and remember you for your accomplishments and successes and love you through your challenges and mistakes.
Although I’ve met my fair share of celebrities, Pete Rose really inspired me by being the man, the coach, the father, and the winner that he is, taking the time to say something as profound and inspiring to me as, ‘I love your attitude” and smile that smile that only Pete has! It meant the world to me! We are all aiming to be champions in our own right and when a true, seasoned, proven champion that you grew up admiring encourages you, it carries some weight and really makes an impression!
I’ve been complimented on my attitude many times before, but to hear it from such a champion, such a pro, from Charlie Hustle himself really moved me! There was an energy in his voice and a passion in his eyes that only a true champion possesses and I will forever remember it and be inspired by it! There is nothing that Pete Rose could have said to me that would have meant more to me coming from him!
Since meeting Pete, I have reflected on our conversation several times and began to re-think about the part our attitude plays in our lives and in the lives of those around us. Our attitude dictates our entire life and is the most important thing we possess, really. No matter what is going on in our lives, no matter what challenges we face, no matter what is happening, we can CHOOSE to have a great attitude, period! On one hand, our attitude is all we have, because we cannot control our every happening and circumstance, but we can control our attitude!
What a luxury we possess being able to control our attitude… What a luxury!
“I love your attitude!”
Thanks so much Pete!!! I love your attitude!!!
X0, Vida, The Queen City Invention Queen
