Audio: Boston Radio Station Invites Rick Pitino On For Interview, Insults Him, Then Hangs Up


As everybody knows, the folks up in Boston take their sports seriously -- very, very seriously. And even worse, or better, depending on if you live in Boston or not, they hold grudges.

Today, one of those grudges was made brutally apparent. Local radio hosts Toucher & Rich asked current Louisville and former Celtics head coach Rick Pitino to appear on their show for an interview, but it was all a very rude setup -- here's the interview in its entirety

Fred:We are joined by Rick Pitino, former coach of the Celtics, current coach of the Louisville Cardinals who won the national championship. Rick Pitino, hello!

Pitino:Morning, guys.

Fred:You stink. You ruined the Celtics. 

You can listen to audio from the show below via CBS Boston, but you don't have to listen very long -- Pitino's segment lasted only about 15 seconds.
