So, Rick Pitino is upset over the media's coverage of his affair.  He says it's been "pure hell" for his family.  Maybe he should have been thinking about his family when he was in that restaurant.  That's really what is hell for your family Rick, not the coverage it's getting in the media.  How do you think your wife is going to feel when you go on the road during basketball season?  You don't think she's going to lay down at night wondering to herself if her husband is in bed with another woman?  You see, Rick, your bad decisions brought this on your family.  I don't think there was anyone from the media there standing guard outside the door while you were inside getting your groove on with this lady.  Is it sad she tried to extort money from you?  Sure it is.  Just keep this in mind, you've got no one to blame but yourself.  Keep your cardinal in your pants and you won't have to worry about what the media publishes.  Do us all a favor and don't try to turn this into a sympathy party.  You're the one that committed adultery.  You live with the hell that has brought with it.
