Rick Pitino: “Most people in Lexington don’t work”


Rick Pitino held a press conference today in Louisville to discuss his team’s upcoming basketball season, and the topic of the Kentucky game came up because of course it did.

When asked about the odd Friday afternoon start for the Cats and Cards, Pitino replied, “Well most people in Lexington don’t work.”

“They’re into basketball all the time,” he added, after a pause for reaction. “Their weekend starts on Thursday night, so they’re going to take off. Believe me, it will be packed.”

Many fans have complained about the 1 pm tip, but Pitino is right: Big Blue Nation will take off and Rupp will be packed.

    Even if we were all unemployed, none of us have ever vacated a national championship for recruiting teenagers with prostitutes

    A huge percentage of people will be off on that day; especially among the white collar workers.

    On a side note, the game will begin at 10 pm in my local time zone This is great news.

    Odd that he got a period of time as big brother but has so easily slipped into the role of little brother.

    Funny thing is Lexington has a much greater average income than Louisville and a far better unemployment rate. Lexington is better than Louisville across the board in standard of living…education, pay, hospitality, medicine, crime, etc.
