Louisville beat Michigan in one of the all-time great national championship games, but the real highlight came after the game. As Rick Pitino was on his way to shake John Beilein's hand, cannons/fireworks/celebratory explosives went off in the arena above the floor and Pitino hilariously ducked for cover as if he was being shot at. Thankfully, Pitino survived the pyrotechnic attack. This is our one shining moment of the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
Pitino thought it was another husband after him. When you fool around with as many women as Pitino does you will be afraid every time you hear a loud sound.
Rick is only human, who the hell wasn't jolted by the bang, I was watching on TV in Canada and scared the hell out of me. Who knows maybe now Americans are allowed to buy Cannons along with their Assault Rifles.
@awfulannouncing saw this live from the upper deck. It was still hilarious.
@awfulannouncing PYYYROOOOOTECHNICCSSSSSSSSSSSSS /maristannouncer
@awfulannouncing good thing he didnt where the white suit
@awfulannouncing Made watching the post game stuff completely worth it.
The comment "Pitino hilariously ducked for cover as if he was being shot at" is monumentally outrageous to say. With shootings at Virginia Tech, the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut to mention just a few from a long list of shootings it is a sad reality we all carry in the back of our minds sometimes without realizing it until a sudden loud noise occurs and you react as Pitino did. It's NOT the least bit funny let alone hilarious! You are clueless.
Saw the end of the game and the fireworks scared the hell out of me ..didn't know what it was at 1st ..Sounded like cannon's going off ..Too loud for my tastes ..Couldn't they have toned it down a little ?
@awfulannouncing how about adulterer Jim nantz referring to adulterer pitino's anniversary this past week. Stfu.
@bbcof83 thank you
@DJNS_Portobello ahahaha that's awesome
@beekface I freaked out seeing it live too! I don’t know, canon fire inside seems like a bit much. Haha
@TJMilless of course, I thought they were shots too! Haha
@awfulannouncing Can they work that into One Shining Moment?
@awfulannouncing He thought it was a mob hit.
@awfulannouncing oh my god, they killed Kenny!
@awfulannouncing thought it was Karen Sypher.
@j_guerrero I like him a lot better than Calipari.
@awfulannouncing or wear. Perhaps Ware. Damn it.
@JaneSmith3 Are you being serious? Because I can read this as either really funny or just sad beyond comment.
@jaybetts yeah. it sounded way loud.
