Really? You think? Granted, the headline was thought up by someone at ESPN.com, but the fact that someone took the time to write the article for The Associate Press is ludicrous as well. To wit:
It’s unclear, however, what kind of a hit Pitino’s brand will take following his very public apology last week for an “indiscretion” at a Louisville restaurant six years ago with a woman later accused of trying to extort millions from him.
His job appears safe after his employers at the university backed him in the days since. His reputation, though, could be a harder sell.
A harder sell? Rick Pitino has something hard for you to sell! Ha!
No, but in all seriousness, he does. For some reason, Pitino purchased a buttload of Cavemen: The First (And Only) Season DVDs and he’d like to dump them. Pitino really thought that show was going somewhere.
