Did Dave Portnoy Steal The Name Barstool From The Simpson’s? @stoolpresidente

Written by TrevStone

Did Dave Portnoy come up with the name Barstool from an episode of The Simpsons? Or did the Simpsons predict this?

I feel as if every week, I learn of something new that the TV show talked about YEARS ago that is now coming true.

And now?

The Pirate Ship.. Barstool Sports

Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports might have came up with the idea… But before Dave started Barstool a little TV show with yellow characters thought about the idea first, in 1991.

The Simpsons showed a quick clip of a newspaper titled, Bar and Stool Magazine.

Another thing that is crazy? At the bottom it says ‘through the roof’… How many times has Dave Portnoy said things like ‘to the moon’, ‘through the roof’, ‘brick by brick’, so many different sayings.

This one just happens to fit with the Barstool lingo.

Okay.. Matt Groening… We are onto you.. You time traveling, freak.

It’s highly doubtful that he watched this episode. Lol.
