Rick Pitino on concussions:
“It’s the seventeenth concussion we’ve had this year,” Pitino said. “I’ve been coaching now 35 years. I’ve seen maybe 5 concussions in 35 years. The new thing is everybody has a concussion. If you walk out and slightly brush the door, you have a concussion. That’s the way it is today.”
So Rick, you blithering nincompoop, does that mean you got a concussion the night you got hammered and banged that groupie on a restaurant table? Obviously, Dr. Pitino is unfamiliar with advancements in the medical field over the last 35 years. Or perhaps it was just a momentary lapse. Fortunately, there has been some progress on how to identify and treat concussions. Will Pitino’s mea culpa come today? Does he squeeze it in before Christmas?
Enjoy the Puerto Rican national team, Rick. Hope that new gig helps you on the recruiting front, you shyster.
