Rick Pitino is playing in a basketball game today


Here’s a fun mental image: Rick Pitino is playing in a basketball game today. Yes, actually playing. According to Cardinal Connect, Pitino is participating in a masters basketball tournament in Coral Springs, Florida, and today at 1:30 p.m., he will suit up for the Redbirds as they take on the Bedford 55. At 64 years old, Pitino will participate in the 55+ league, his first return to competitive basketball since playing for UMass in 1974.

We’ve gotta have some readers in the Coral Springs area, right? Pitino’s team plays today at 1:30 p.m., tomorrow at 5 p.m., Thursday at 5 p.m., and Friday and Saturday should they advance in the tournament.

Someone please get down to the Coral Springs Gymnasium and document this for us.

UPDATE: There are pictures!

And videos!

    The coach that brought him in will probably barely play him to make sure he doesn’t get enough exposure to get drafted in the AARP league next year, then that coach will tell everyone that’s the best way to develop talent.

      Commenting and speaking the truth about ksr is stalking? So I guess that means ur stalking too by commenting, but then also stalking me for directly replying to me… #bbnlogic

    Btw, no need to be Creepy. The real journalist in Louisville will be covering this story. So no need for death threats, phone stalking etc
