Pete Rose is one of America's foremost experts on apologies. Not because he has made a ton of them, but because he spent so much time not making one, then made one, and is now spending his life as a giant, desperate, walking apology.
He knows how it's done and he knows how it's not done and he knows that, whatever it is, you definitely need to nip it in the bud before...
