Pitino celebrates National Championship by going to Disney World getting a tattoo

1gfQ5Ik
Watch out!

Rick Pitino’s Louisville transformation is finally complete: he’s getting a tattoo.

Whereas most would celebrate a National Championship with a nice vacation to Disney World or fancy dinner, Rick Pitino is taking a cue from his players and will get a tattoo:

“They said if you win the national championship, coach, you are getting a tattoo. I said, ‘Hell yes’ I’m getting a tattoo!

(Don’t you mean, “L Yes”?)

Peyton Siva told reporters that the Cards’ main motivation to win last night was seeing their coach get inked: “I think that was our biggest motivation, was to get Coach P a tattoo.” Where should he get it, Russ Smith? “He’s gotta get it on his lower back. Something crazy like an evil unicorn.”

    Woah. Surely that’s tongue-in-cheek. No way that’s their biggest motivation.

    Can’t fault Pitino too much on being jumpy as several other people did too, but look at Boehlein coldly stare off at it in the distance without so much as a flinch.

    I HATE all things Louisville. I subscribe to the theory that this KSR website
    and the KSR radio show on Tuesday morning should NOT have mentioned anything about the game. NOTHING!!!!! So Ryan Lemon, SHUT UP!!!!!!

    The tattoo will be a montage of the greatest college basketball players in history, starting off with the UK legend Troy McKinley!

    It is pretty funny that tattoos were UL’s motivation for winning a title. I’m sure there is something in the contract for the Yum center that tax payers will have to pay for free tattoos for everyone in Jefferson county.

    The michigan players should get a tatto also of somebody choking to death.

    Coach Cal can take the high road by saying something nice about Louisville but naturally most of you guys seem incapable of being gracious. This is why you guys have replaced Duke as the most disliked fan base in all of college basketball. I was for UK in the finals last year and felt happy for Cal but never expected you people to reciprocate.

    Main motivation to win was so that your coach would get inked? Yeah, sounds about right coming from the idiot birds.

    @ #20. Oh grow up. It’s a rivarly. Most people have forgotten that Pitino committted adultery on a restaurant table and funded abortion for it. Now he’s a saint. UK fans have every right to poke fun at UofL and Ricky P.

    Pitino should grow a line beard too, it will look great with the tatoo

    Troy McKinley scored nearly 200 pts during his 4 yrs at UK … think about that for a minute … nearly 200 pts … he was maybe the best player in UK history to almost reach the 200 point club !

    In Rick’s case it’s not called a tramp stamp… he refers to it as a “Sypher Stamp”

    So instead of going to Disney after Cards win the NC. Ricky three stacks decides to treat himself to a tramp stamp. I guess you have to appeal to your base.
    Stay classy

    @ #24 – Speaking of forgetting, most people on here also seem to forget (or are too young to remember or weren’t even born yet) what it was like in ’89 when Pitino took over the complete shambles of a program left by Eddie Sutton. Has Pitino made some personal (Sypher) & professional (Celtics) mistakes? Absolutely. But never forget or stop appreciating what a great job he did bringing UK back from the dead, going from probation with no TV coverage, reduction in scholarships, etc. to national championship in 7 years. It’s very tough to watch your rival win it all, but I have respect for Pitino as a great coach. You can see his “jersey” in the Rupp rafters anytime you go to a game, btw…

    16. Meta, bro. I like the way you think.

    Also, can we talk about the fact that when asked, Siva’s first reaction was “evil unicorn” tramp stamp? I’m not sure if he’s hilarious or had just played the entire game on shrooms.

    The NCAA may just as well have thrown the trophy in the dumpster; the trash it’d be surrounded by in there bears no difference to the trash that’ll surround it in Louisville.

    Pitino looked like a man who thought somebody done found him!!! lol. Thought that was hilarious. I think they should issue the Refs official UL jerseys! Put them in the team championship pictures. Let them hold up that trophy, since they had such a big part in winning it. Bilas and Terricco said something about this. Something about how the UL players won’t make it in the NBA unless they unlearn and then re-learn the entire game, or else they’d foul out of every game by halftime!! Said the way UL is being allowed to play the game is ruining the game. Also, i was wondering? On the infamous Van Treese assault on the Baker kid for Witchita St. That was changed -AFTER REVUE? – to offsetting fouls. Can they charge someone with a foul that wasn’t called during the game? By use of the revue? AND, even if they offset Van Treese hard foul with the hand on the back, that Van Treese grabbed and pulled onto his own back, how was there NOT at least a flagrant 1 tech. foul called on the excessive blow to the face??? If they nutralize the other two fouls, what about protecting the players from head shots? Intentional or not?! I saw fouls this year called when there was no contact, just an elbow swung in the direction of the head? V.T. almost broke that kids neck! That was a vicious blow… There was definately contact to the head, and i thought that’s all it took??? That’s not mentioning the second shot with the elbow to the face. V.T. had him OVER HIS KNEE, bracing the kids back, pulled him in and snapped his head back hard with that shot to the face and throat. If you watch it full view, VT sure seems to be looking at the kid while he did it?

    To those Louisville fans that don’t seem to grasp the problem with Pitino.

    How many times did he say I will never KY?
    How many times, while employed at UofL, has he remarked about UK’s status or it being “Camelot”?

    Talk to your coach why Louisville may be #1 in the country but number #2 in the State.

    And lastly, can you see Dean Smith in NC State Red, or Coach K in Maryland Red or Bobby Knight in Notre Dame Green & Gold? NO, because all of them, even Coach Knight knew about class. And I don’t mean that class that most of the Uof L students cut today.

    Pitino needs a line beard & tattoo of Karen Sypher. If you believe rick, then I have some nice beach front property to sell you in the West End. UL the architect of their own demise.

    UL fans should read Rick book & see what he says about UK, aka the Roman Empire of basketball, and that his biggest mistake was leaving UK; then again, most UL fans can’t read.
