After having worked in the sports radio game, I’m not really surprised these days about things that happen in the realm of sports radio.
Earlier today, former NBA head coach Rick Pitino was supposed to do an interview on Boston-area sports radio show, “The Toucher and Rich Show” about his brand new book.
However, instead of doing an interview, he hung up on Rick:
Fred Toucher: 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.
Toucher: You stink. You ruined the Celtics.
(hosts hang up)
After he hung up on Pitino, the duo laughed over it for the next few minutes and well, I guess it was sorta funny.
