The Rick Pitino scandal

We take a break from summer break with a comment on the news of Pitino's affair with a lady somewhere out there. It looks like Pitino didn't eat enough humble pie in the NBA, so he is getting another freshly re-heated pie in 2009.

That's what it is, but at the same time, the reactions and overreactions to these are as usual over the top. People screw up all the time. He was a basketball coach, not a priest. He's certainly not the only coach with "indiscretions" and it's not like there is a long line of them waiting to "confess" to their adoring fans.

It's really a personal life type of thing, but of course it will be tabloid fodder and scandal-du-jour material.

Some reactions:
* A Sea of Blue
* The Quad (NYT)
* The big story at the LCJ
