Mashup: Pete Rose gets reality show on TLC

Major League Baseball career hits leader Pete Rose is filming a reality show for TLC. The show will focus on the 71-year-old Rose and his fiancee, a model who is about half his age. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has a working title of "Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project."

"It's not going to be classless," Rose insisted. "It seems like a lot of reality shows aren't really reality, but our reality show is going to be funny, entertaining and real."

Rose, banned from baseball after gambling on games when he served as manager of the Reds, remains out of the Hall of Fame, but he hopes his call will come some day.

“If the commissioner [Bud Selig] ever finds it in its heart to give me a second chance, I’m sure that we’ll address that,” Rose said. “But if I ever make the Hall of Fame, I’ll be the happiest guy in the world because I understand what it means. But I...

C's will use mid-level exception on Terry

LAS VEGAS -- The Celtics tried to work a sign-and-trade deal for free agent guard Jason Terry, but they will instead use the mid-level exception to sign Terry, team president Danny Ainge said. A deal should be announced soon, possibly as early as Wednesday.

The Mavericks forced the C's hand with the signing of O.J. Mayo, but pulling off a deal became a daunting task when the Mavs elected to use their cap space on a number of free agents including Chris Kaman and Elton Brand. The Celtics tried to get a third team involved to facilitate the deal but couldn't find a taker.

With Terry accepting the mid-level, the capped-out C's will have to swing a sign-and-trade for another guard, such as Courtney Lee. That may prove even more difficult as the Celtics have few assets for such a maneuver. The Rockets landed Jeremy Lin on Tuesday night and will likely extend an offer sheet to restricted free agent center Omer Asik by the end of the week.

Celts continue to roll with win over Bulls

LAS VEGAS -- The Celtics summer league team continued its winning ways, holding off a late Chicago rally with a 79-74 win over the Bulls on Tuesday night. E'Twaun Moore led the way with 25 points, including 14 in the first half when the C's went on a 21-2 run to take control of the game.

Dionte Christmas also continued to impress with 18 points, and Jamar Smith heated up with 11 points in the first half. Both players have drawn praise from members of the team's hierarchy throughout summer league.

Jared Sullinger was matched up against former Celtic Leon Powe. Despite shooting 3-for-15 and scoring just seven points, Sullinger grabbed 13 rebounds, including five on the offensive glass. JaJuan Johnson also had a big night on the glass with 12 rebounds.

Second-round pick Kris Joseph hyperextended his left knee in the first half and did not return for the second. Sean Williams (ankle) also didn't play.

Dennard trial date pushed to December

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, allegedly was involved in a fight outside a Lincoln, Neb., bar on April 21, reportedly was granted a continuance in his case on Tuesday, according to a report in the Lincoln Journal Star/HuskerExtra.com, which will push his trial date to December. Dennard, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2012 draft, pleaded not guilty to charges of third-degree assault in the wake of the April incident, which many believe caused his draft stock to fall.

Lack-Lester: Youk HR beats Red Sox

Kevin Youkilis broke open a close game with a three-run homer off Jon Lester as the White Sox beat the Red Sox, 7-5, Tuesday night at a steamy Fenway Park. Youkilis also walked and scored twice in the game and is 4-for-8 with two doubles, a home run and three runs scored in his first two games against his former team. Carl Crawford had three hits -- including two that didn't leave the infield -- and three steals, and is 5-for-7 in his first two games back. 

Lester continued to look out of sorts, giving up six runs and seven hits while lasting just four innings in the oppressive heat, as the Red Sox fell to 7-12 in games started by the lefty this season. The trouble, as it has with several Red Sox starters all season, began in the first inning. Lester allowed three hits, a walk to Youkilis and two runs as the White Sox jumped out on top for the second straight night. Lester, who was forced to throw 27 pitches in the first, was bailed out when the...
