Rick Pitino wins national championship, then ducks for cover (Video)



Louisville Cardinals men's basketball coach Rick Pitino led his team to the 2013 NCAA championship Monday night with an 82-76 win over the Michigan Wolverines.

Pitino probably expected to win the championship after getting the top seed in this year's NCAA tournament. What Pitino didn't expect, however, were the loud fireworks that went off a few seconds after the clock ticked down to zero. Pitino was just about to shake hands with Michigan coach John Beilein when the fireworks went off, causing him to duck and put his hands over his head before realizing he was perfectly safe.

A spontaneously funny moment to watch, and it becomes even funnier in the attached video which plays the scene over and over again.

H/T AA.
