It’s that time of year when my kids are starting to put together their Christmas lists and it got me thinking, what do I want from Santa. I thought for a while and there is one thing the sports fan in me wants more than anything else. For Rick Pitino to continue as the Head Basketball Coach at the sleaziest school in America.
It has been very enjoyable to watch the rest of the country rub the sleep from their eyes and realize what I have been seeing for years and the best part is Louisville fans no longer have any leg to stand on when it comes to trash talking. Until the people take back their University from the 4-headed douchebag of Pitino, Petrino, Jurich, and Ramsey, they will continue to be the laughing stock of the country.
Now many of you might be asking who this Ramsey guy is and why is he being lumped into the same flaming bag of dog shit as the other three. Well he is the University President. The same University President who said he had not watched the ESPN OTL piece on his University,umm the boys at ESPN did their homework on this one, you might want to check it out. He is also the same guy who thought it would be a good idea to dress him and his staff in stereotype Mexican garb for Halloween.
I love it, Louisville has become the sleaziest sports program in the country and it’s not even close. When you look at the scandals to this point most of them involve money from boosters or kids getting some sort of improper benefit. Bad yes, criminal no. Not at Louisville. What they did is not only bad but yes, very criminal. Supplying Hookers and booze for underage recruits is, well, not above the law. Have fun with your buddies Penn St. football and Baylor basketball.
I also love how delusion a segment of the Louisville fan base really is. This is a portion of society that actually thinks Pitino and Petrino tells the truth and this whole thing is NO BIG DEAL.
But in the words of the great Lee Corso, not so fast my friend. Not only is it a big deal but everyone, and I mean everyone has taken notice. When your basketball program is being talked about on The View, Good Morning America, and The Today Show it’s not good. When every national newspaper is writing columns about how in the world has Rick not been put on at least suspension, it’s a big deal. And my favorite so far is when the Tony Kornheiser Show plays jingles mocking you then yes, the shit has hit the fan.
In typical Kornheisr fashion, this is awesome.
So there you have it Santa, I never want this to end. I want to be able to make fun of Louisville forever. Because if the Louisville community pull their heads out of their ass long enough to realize their school and program are bigger than the 4-headed douchebag then they might go back to being a respected, winning program.
