Hundreds of fans get bottles signed by Coach Rick Pitino
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---Hundreds of people waited in line on Sunday for a signature from U of L men's basketball coach Rick Pitino.
Coach Pitino signed 400 commemorative Maker's Mark bottles, featuring his image.
The event was held at the Molly Malone's Irish Pub and Restaurant on Shelbyville Road.
Everyone in line was allowed to have one bottle signed.
It wasn't just U of L fans waiting in line.
"I'm a die hard Kentucky fan. Have been my whole life. Winner of the 1996 National Championship team. My best friend's birthday was yesterday. He had a bottle. I had a ticket. I got it signed for him," says John Cobb.
Proceeds from the sales of the Maker's Mark bottles will go toward the U of L Academic Center for Excellence.
Coach Pitino signed 700 bottles at an event last month.
