Jay Mohr, “Rick Pitino Has Lost His Freaking Mind!”

Rick Pitino has had a wild week.  His season is coming to an end, he’s handing out championship rings, his boss might lose his job and he’s talking about whether he’s still going to keep his own.

When Rick spoke to ESPN about his future, we all focused on certain words that would indicate whether or not he planned on staying or leaving.  We were focused on the wrong words.  Here’s the statement to ESPN we should’ve paid attention to:

“Jimmy [Valvano] said that NCAA investigation [at NC State] broke down his immune system,” Pitino recalled. “I told people that I was so saddened by what happened here, that I wasn’t sleeping, that it had taken a big toll on me. … But I said, ‘I’m not going to let this thing get me sick,’ and it hasn’t gotten me sick.”

Standup comedian and iHeart radio sports host, Jay Mohr, wouldn’t let this egregious remark slide.  Mohr became outraged to think that Rick would try to invoke sympathy by playing a “Jimmy V” card.  Valvano was dying of cancer.  Rick’s players were having hooker parties.

Listen below for Mohr’s monologue that includes a few clever jokes too, like:

“You knew something was amiss at Louisville when Rick Pitino started wearing that all-white suit on the sidelines like he wanted to be the next comedian to be Colonel Sanders.”

    Pitino has become a pathetic shell of a human being. First he uses his dead brother-in-law to invoke sympathy, then Ted Kennedy, now Jim Valvano. I can see where we would consider the NCAA a cancer but it is not what killed Valvano but if there is justice in the world the NCAA will take out Pitino for good.

    What Mohr is saying makes Pitino sound terrible, and he’s not even exaggerating. The fact that some fans still support Pitino is just getting sad now. How stupid do you have to be to have sympathy for this man?

    Somebody teach Mohr the difference between referring to yourself in the first person vs the third person.

    Well, that was outstanding. Kudos Mr. Mohr. As a rule I can’t listen to things like that, because they get boring. But man, that was great. When I read Pitinos clip on KSR, I thought it was a joke, couldn’t believe he actually said that. Couldn’t he have found a way to bring 911 and his dear BIL into that?
