Rick Pitino will tattoo a Cardinal and “2013 Champions” on his left shoulder

Rick Pitino confirmed today that he will be getting a tattoo to commemorate Louisville’s run through the NCAA tournament. The tattoo, believe it or not, will not be Pat Forde’s initials on his grundle, but of the Louisville Cardinal with “2013 Champions” across it. He plans to tattoo that filth on his left shoulder.

He’s all yours, Louisville. The “Is he Kentucky or Louisville?” debate ends with a Louisville tattoo.

    I ain’t hate’n on him for it. I think it’s pretty cool he’s following up on the promise to his players to get a tattoo if they won it all.

    Actually, it will be comprised of two birds, the red male (Pitino), and the brown female (Karen Sypher), and will symbolize two different but related runs.

    A guy close to the wiggins camp confirmed that while at the medical center, she over heard the the lab techs confirming that Rick Pitino has an STD and possible HIV. The tattoo is no longer an option.

    Reports are that he has karen sypher tatted on his manhood, and when it’s at room temperature it just says KSR.

    I bet he gets a temporary and doesn’t tell anyone. Even Rick Pitino is not a Louisville Cardinal at heart, he is Blue through & through but would never admit it publicly, at least until he retires!

    How hilarious would it be, if for some reason, something came out and they had to vacate the championship and he ends up stuck with that shit on his arm?

    As promised to his team for winning the national championship, Pitino got his tattoo today. He decided to honor the year by getting a portrait of John Wooden on his left buttock and Denny Crum on his right. When he got home, he excitedly showed Joanne. After a moment of awkward silence, he asked her what she thought. She paused, and then said, “Well, I recognize the guy in the middle as Calipari, but who are the other two guys?”

    The tat should read “I won a Title at UL and all I got was this stupid tattoo and Sypher’s syphilis.”

    He only has two shoulders. I guess he only plans on winning 1 more at UL. Meanwhile, Cal should start getting tattoos on his fingers and toes. He has one title, I will take 19 more from Cal. Then he can retire.

    Pitino says now Russ smith is 50/50 on his decision to enter the draft. It is unbelievable to see how his players believe that junk he is selling. In my opinion, Smith and Behannan should go pro as this is the best draft and may cost them hundreds of thousand dollars by delaying their opportunity to go pro.

    I like pitino, but this is an obvious case of Pitino manipulating his players for his own personal agenda. If Behannan and Russ Smith both come back, then they will win the national championship again. I hate that as much as I do if Duke was to win it. louisville will win it again if Smith comes back —remember this post.

    his tattoo should be of the Italian flag which is green,red and white stripes and and the white stripe should have a uk symbol on it and say “the good” the red stripe should say “the bad” for loserville and the green one should say “the ugly” for the Celtics.

    DK, seems like I recall Jurich and the majority of “Card Nation” running your former HOF coach out of his job in order to bring in UK’s sloppy seconds. Frankly, I’m surprised Crum still hangs around UofL after the shabby treatment he received. Three short years ago a good portion of “Card Nation” was ready to run Pitino out of town on a rail after he shagged a skank in a public restaurant then paid for her abortion, and then furthermore paid his equipment manager to marry her so she would keep quiet.

    Don’t forget about “SamakiGate”, when UofL came within a whisker of major sanctions for repeated violations while already on probation. the only reason they were bailed out is because Jurich hired a slick lawyer with past connections to the NCAA to get them off the hook on a technicality.

    For the record, I have nothing against Pitino, and have a lot of respect for his coaching ability and have a lot of gratitude for what he did while at UK. Leaving UK, he will freely admit, was amongst the worst decisions of his life – almost as bad as his decision to put on the wine goggles one evening and sow his wild oats. Card fans may want to claim him as their own, but keep in mind that their success over the past 12 years was predicated on the success of UK – both the hiring of Pitino in the first place, and the fact years later that UK’s hiring of Calipari gave him the impetus to actually start coaching again rather than mailing it in and chasing skanks.
