Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino held a press conference Wednesday, against the advise of his lawyers, to complain that on the day Sen. Ted Kennedy died it was unseemly for the media to be covering the scandal he’s involved in. He said it’s been “pure hell” on his family.
The problem is that Pitino (who is married) had sex with Karen Sypher at a Louisville restaurant in 2003, then paid for an abortion. Sypher was arrested earlier this year for allegedly trying to extort millions of dollars from Pitino.
It’s not the media’s fault that his family is suffering. He brought that upon them by his actions.
