Coach Pitino Decides on a Tattoo


One of the main reasons that Louisville players were striving to win it all this year was the fact that, late to mid-season, Coach Pitino promised them that if they won the national championship this year, he’d get a tattoo.  Well now, the Cards are national champions, and Coach Pitino said in front of national tv that he is for sure getting a tattoo!

In the time since the national championship victory, there’s been much speculation as to what Pitino would get (L1C4 on his face, basketball nets on the elbows, etc.).  The speculation is now over.  Coach Pitino has made it known as to what the tattoo he’s getting will be.  He has said that he will be getting the Louisville Cardinal logo and the words “2013 champions” on his left shoulder.  Hopefully he’ll wear a sleeveless shirt to the Red-White game next season to show off his new ink a bit!
