Louisville defines itself by its choice to accept Rick Pitino’s apology

“Success is a Choice” is the title of Rick Pitino’s best-selling book from 1997.
You know what else is a choice? Having sex with a woman you’ve barely met inside a popular Louisville restaurant, and then two weeks later when she claims she’s pregnant shelling out three grand for an abortion, er, “medical insurance.”
Whatever else you’ve read or heard about the trials and tribulations of Pitino, the highly popular basketball coach at the University of Louisville, the crux of the story is that of a high profile, wealthy, powerful, married man having the most impersonal of physical relationships with a woman he’d only met a few hours before, according to a police report obtained by the Louisville Courier-Journal.
