Rick Pitino will hold a press conference in New York later today to comment on the punishment handed down to his former employer, the University of Louisville.
It’s a really dumb thing to do, but it’s so Rick Pitino. When most people would stay silent and move on with their lives, Rick Pitino wants to spew more of his drivel, in hopes someone will feel sorry for him.
So what will Pitino say today? I have some guesses.
“I can’t believe we’re talking about this on the day Billy Graham died.”
If not Graham, Pitino could also turn to the anniversary of the deaths of Malcolm X, Pope Benedict XIII or the great Tim Horton. (Love me some Timbits.)
“It’s all Andre’s fault!”
One of the more likely scenarios is Pitino continuing to place all of the blame on his former assistant, Andre McGee. Pitino will go to the grave denying any knowledge of the stripper parties, and he may use this afternoon to further his denial.
“Poor me. It’s so unfair. Wahhhhhh. Poor me.”
He is the victim here, you know. He’s quick to tell you that.
“I passed a lie detector test so you should believe me.”
When Pitino sat down with Jay Bilas to deny any knowledge of the Brian Bowen scandal (LOL), he pointed to a lie detector test — one he voluntarily took on his own dime — to prove his innocence.
I think he keeps one in his closet.
“I accept fully responsibility and I’m truly sorry.”
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha… Yeah, right.
