Pretty Ricky What They Call 'Em
This is sooo not the year to be a rich dude creeping around on the wifey. Tiger Woods is still smarting from the Thanksgiving Day Massacre. Reggie Wayne let his side piece get his credit card and go all "The Biggest Loser" on it. Steve McNair... nuff said.
Well, get ready for more. The Rick Pitino extortion case has begun, and this promises to be some entertaining "ish".
Here's the rundown for those who don't know. Legendary coach, who is a married father of six, pokes woman (Karen Sypher), raw dog, back in 2003 in a restaraunt, with another person in the room. Surprise! She claims to be pregnant about a year later. Coach sends her to the abortion clinic with his assistant and $3,000. Three stacks! Assistant falls in love with woman on the ride to the clinic, and marries her. Marriage dissolves. Woman says Pitino raped her and demands millions of dollars. Coach gets extortion charges filed on woman.
Believe it or not, that's the boring stuff.
Testimony in the trial started today, and it is grand. Check it out.
Nickname suggestions? "Slick Rick" won't do, but "Quick Rick" sounds fun. "Premature Pitino"? Eh...
