Pitino needs to keep cool to survive

Some advice for Rick Pitino: He should follow the advice that Rick Pitino gave University of Louisville fans during his harsh 6½-minute news conference Wednesday afternoon.
The next time that news airs about the Pitino-Karen Sypher encounter, Pitino and his family members should change the channel quicker than the coach changes point guards. If he finds his blood pressure escalating when he begins reading stories in the paper similar to this column, flip to a story about his beloved New York Yankees.
He shouldn’t
let himself be consumed by coverage about this tabloid bonanza. All Rick Pitino and his family will do is continue to be agitated about a story that Rick Pitino certainly helped to create — and a story that is not disappearing quietly or soon.
