But Pitino can cheer him up in 15 seconds. (via Deadspin)
You can't break the backboard that way. He was just being polite.
Now his parents are doubly embarrassed.
Taking a look at the biggest sports punchlines of 2010
According to various studies, the average person reads 225 words a minute. Some can obviously read more. Some, of course, read less. But most everyone falls in a range of 200 to 250 words a minute. What that means is that by the time you have finished reading this paragraph this paragraph that contains 120 words Louisville head basketball coach Rick Pitino could have had sex twice with some random woman on a table at an upscale Italian restaurant while one of his assistants sleeps on the floor within earshot of the happy couple. Larry Bird is not coming through that door. Kevin McHale and Robert Parish aren't coming either. But Rick Pitino is. Down his pants leg. And fast.
A few years ago Rick Pitino published a best-selling self-help book called "Success Is a Choice: 10 Steps To Overachieving In Business and Life."
It was an incredibly revealing book. Just take a look at the Table of Contents.
Going to a game? Need a sign to taunt the opposition? Can't think up anything good to write?
You're in luck!
Just e-mail SportsPickle, provide the name of your target, and you might just get back a list of sign-appropriate messages.
That's what this PITT fan did before the Panthers game against Louisville on Saturday and thanks completely to the message SportsPickle provided (and this fan's award-winning penmanship) PITT overcame a 5-point deficit with only 34 seconds remaining to win!
Try it out!
And if you take a picture of your sign at the game, it'll run on the site.
What do you have to lose? (Other than your sign and your tickets?)
Papa John said everyone in attendance at the Louisville-Oral Roberts game last week would get a free pizza if he hit a shot from half court.
Chances are Papa John didn't have to buy everyone a pizza. Rick Pitino only eats at Porcini. (I'm sorry. I meant "eats." And, wait Rick Pitino, Italian food and Oral all combined in the same video? It's amazing it's SFW.)
