On Wednesday we discussed Doc Rivers and his honesty. Today, another former Boston Celtics coach, Rick Pitino made some news, but he only spent about five seconds doing so.
Pitino "joined" the Toucher and Rich show to promote his new book. However, Fred Toucher decided to cut the interview just a little bit short. The only words Pitino was able to say were "Morning, Guys." No that is not the title of his new book.
Fred Toucher followed that up with "You stink, you ruined the Celtics," and hung up.
Is this in poor taste? Some might think so. But Toucher and Rich can be pretty tough on people they don't like. They don't pull punches, they don't waste air time.
The other intriguing part about the interview is that it comes on the heels of the Celtics announcing their radio partnership with The Sports Hub after WEEI and Celtics parted ways. Could this have been a method of winning over Celtics fans, considering the fact that the Celtics fans are vulnerable right now? It's very possible.
It will be an interesting environment on The Sports Hub considering how hockey focused the station has been since it's inception. This is definitely one way for The Sports Hub to endear itself to the Celtics fan.
