According to Greg the tipster, this past weekend Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino saddled up to a blackjack table in the Wynn Las Vegas high rollers area. He started with $15,000 played two hands at once for about an hour, then left the table with...$15,000.

While it doesn't surprise us that Pitino was playing two hands at once, we are impressed that he was able to break even while playing with the big boys.

At one point, while his blackjack table was going through a particularly nasty losing streak, Pitino stood up, looked the dealer in the eye, and in front of a crowded room shouted:

Larry Bird is not walking through that door, fans. Kevin Blackwood is not walking through that door and that genius from MIT is not walking through that door. And if you expect them to walk through that door, they're going to be gray and old.

Now that would have been hilarious.
