The reverse-psychology often employed by Bugs Bunny so rarely works outside of a cartoon setting, much less a sex scandal involving a hot-headed, high-profile college basketball coach and a woman who is, for all intents and purposes, quite possibly insane. Rick Pitino’s chastising of the media at his afternoon press conference attempted to do just that: By imploring people to not watch his combative, accusatory performance — the day after both Ted Kennedy and the economy died, apparently — he’s actually imploring more people to watch. Is this some kind of strategy we cannot fathom? Telling the media to go fuck themselves in front of innumerable recording devices owned, ostensibly, by the media?
But wait! We have exclusive, unseen footage of Pitino’s meltdown that might shed some light on these and other matters. JUST DON’T WATCH IT!!!!
(This is known, colloquially, as a “psych,” BTW)
