ABSTRACT
This article focuses on sports series "Hustle." The banishment of all-time hits leader Pete Rose from baseball and its Hall of Fame remains one of the sport's most controversial and infamous episodes. ESPN slides headfirst into that controversy with Hustle, a fictional account that pulls few punches. Janzsen watches the 1986 National League championship in the ballplayer's home, but baseball's not the only thing on TV: Rose (Tom Sizemore) is also keeping track of two college football games, and getting his own piece of the action.
