In journalism school, one of the first things they teach is that any number below 10 is written out (two, three, four, etc.), and any number 10 or above is a numeral (3,500, 60, etc.).
When Boston sports radio hosts Toucher and Rich, erm, interviewed Rick Pitino on the Sports Hub 98.5, the time had to be written out. Apparently, there just wasn’t that much to say. Fortunately, Fred Toucher was willing to say what most of us think when we hear Pitino’s name.
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.
Fred then hung up and began “The Stack” segment, and the interview was over.
We are going to hear from a lot of people who think this is rude and unprofessional, but they also hate fun and funny things, because this was kind of hysterical.
