So in most years, the Kentucky Derby will likely have nothing to do with college sports whatsoever. But in 2013, national champion head coach Rick Pitino has a horse in the famed race — Goldencents. Of course, the world of Twitter is going to make jokes about Pitino and his horse — here are a few shots fired: Prediction: GoldenCents falls on track, Pitino comes to its side, horse tells Rick, “Just win the race.” Awkwardness ensues. — John Walters (@jdubs88) May 4, 2013 Rick Pitino just realized that “the most exciting two minutes in sports” is referring to the Kentucky Derby, not sex with him. — Joe Buck Yourself (@JoeBuckYerself) May 3, 2013 Jealous of Rick Pitino, John Calipari tries to enter horse in Kentucky Derby. Thwarted when he finds out yearlings aren’t eligible. — VandyExile (@VandyExile) May 3, 2013 Did Rick Pitino promise GOLDENCENTS he would get a tattoo if he won the Kentucky Derby? twitter.com/AndyHughes128/… — Andy Hughes (@AndyHughes128) May 4, 2013 My pick for the Kentucky Derby? ANYONE BUT GOLDENCENTS! I CANT BEAR TO SEE RICKY P HOLDING THE TROPHY. — Jay Hochstetler (@JayHochKSR) May 1, 2013
