I know, I'm being petty. And I should move on from the whole Rick Pitino-destroyed-my-favorite-team grudge. But I cracked a smile this morning upon hearing the latest news regarding slick Rick:
University of Louisville men's basketball coach Rick Pitino told police
that he had consensual sex with Karen Cunagin Sypher at a Louisville
restaurant where he'd been drinking on Aug. 1, 2003.
He also told police that he later gave Sypher $3,000 to have an abortion…
This could be the beginning of the end for Pitino at Louisville. For starters, he's married. Even if most of the bible-thumping Louisville boosters are able to overlook infidelity, I'm not so sure they'll get past the abortion.
The fact it happened six years ago doesn't matter. It's new to the media. And since there's nothing else remotely close to Cardinal basketball on the Louisville sports scene, this story isn't going anyway anytime soon.
