So apparently the Pitino family is collectively really into Pitbull’s music. Earlier this season, Big Lead Sports reported that Rick Pitino listens to the Miami-based rapper while working out:
Pitino says Pitbull is his favorite “he was 305 now he’s worldwide” works out while listening to him

So what better gift for Pitino’s 300th victory at Louisville than a signed headshot of his favorite entertainer? That’s what his son, Richard, who is the coach of Florida International, got for him in celebration.
I don’t know if this is a joke because of the earlier quote in the season by Pitino or if these guys really do rock out to “Don’t Stop The Party”, but either way, it’s pretty amusing.
