Rick Pitino doesn’t need help seeing his tattoo. (Frank Franklin II)

But, no. After they delivered earlier this month, he went all in, getting a great big red “L” along with “2013 NCAA champions 35-5″ on his left shoulder (where he won’t really have to see it very often, one would presume).


Wonder what he’ll do if his horse, Goldencents, wins the Kentucky Derby…
