Way to go, Pitino


Way to go, Pitino

By Mary Paoletti

Congratulations, Rick Pitino!

If I was being sarcastic, I'd be toasting you for screwing up one of my best brackets. It's not MY fault for picking Louisville to beat Morehead State, it's YOUR fault for failing to coach your 4-seeded team past No. 13 MSU.

You thought you were smart, scaring the crap out of your kids by calling the Eagles "As good as any team in the country" so your team wouldn't underestimate the Ohio Valley Conference champions the way most Big East big dogs would.

Right? That was your plan?

Well, it backfired, you sharp-dressed dummy.

Instead of playing tough, your kids played scared; they fell behind 15-7 at the start and left little puddles of pee all over the court. And of course they were terrified! You called Kenneth Faried (14.5 rpg, 17.6 ppg): a Dennis Rodman-type player." Your Cards probably thought they were going to get hit on by a cross-dresser.

A few other reasons why sarcasm is warranted:

1. You made the Louisville mascot sad. Not nice.

2. Still mad about what you did to the Celtics.

3. You were the first Big East team to give haters a reason to get their cross-eyed, arms-flailing, "OVERRATED" verbal-diarrhea started. And that made Charles Barkley sound smart. Turrible.

Huh. Guess I was being sarcastic.

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan says 'you’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady'

Michael Strahan cherished sacking Tom Brady. He embraced mere contact with the New England Patriots quarterback.

Strahan, who sacked Brady three times during his NFL career with the New York Giants, discussed how he felt when he got the opportuntiy to bring down Brady.

“You’ve never lived unless you’ve hit Tom Brady. Not just Brady but any quarterback," Strahan told WWD in a story published Wednesday. “Like, you hit a guy, hit a grown man, and you hear the life and the breath leave his body. There’s something very empowering about that. Then, you hit Brady, you sack him and you land on Brady. And you get up and you’re, like, ‘Boy, I see what Gisele is feeling. You know, I just laid down with Tom Brady. That was cool.'”

It sounds like Strahan may enjoy sacking Brady a little too much. But his abiltiy to get to Brady in the Super Bowl did help swing the result in the Giants' favor, so perhaps that's a part of why he has such fond memories of being atop Brady.

The Patriots are the likeliest destination for Darrelle Revis, according to reports. Tom E. Curran discusses whether or not Revis would want to return to the Patriots and what this means for Malcolm Butler.
