Rick Pitino has been all over the radio and television in the past 48-hours promoting his new book, “The One Day Contract.” He spent the entire day in New York City on Wednesday appearing on multiple different TV shows. Pitino has also phoned in to radio shows across the country.
On Thursday morning he called in to a Boston radio show, only be the butt of a joke. As soon as they introduced Pitino and he said hello, the host of the show insulted him and then hung up.
Host: We are joined by Rick Pitino, former coach of the Celtics, current coach of the Louisville Cardinals who won the national championship. Rick Pitino, hello!
Pitino: Morning, guys.
Host: You stink. You ruined the Celtics.
Here is the audio
As soon as they insulted him, the hosts hung up on him and rejoiced as if they had just won a championship game. You look pretty foolish trying to clown a Hall-of-Fame coach who just won a national championship and is expected to get back to the Final Four for the third consecutive year.
