Pitino sees things differently

[stextbox id=”custom”]

Rick Pitino will probably never be seen wearing glasses court side, and certainly not wire rims. The University of Louisville basketball coach prefers the heavy dark plexi style, saving them exclusively for press conferences and other situations where he wants to be analytical, nostalgic or philosophical. The Clark Kent look suits him well when he’s not performing Superman-like coaching feats, like getting this year’s team to the Final Four.

    Not a good look for CRP. Makes him look very old. Almost like Larry King.

    Certainly this style of eyewear is IN — the black, rectangular shape.

    It is also one of the ugliest trends in eyeglasses ever.

    In the upcoming Superman film, “Man of Steel”, it’s reported that Clark Kent will not wear glasses.
