Hey fam – if you’d like to support Turtleboy and what we do here, feel free to hit the donate button at the top. We basically have to run this site like a Bernie Sanders campaign now since we’ve been blacklisted by Google and Facebook, due to the fact that rabid SJWs keep reporting our posts. Getting blacklisted by Google is a death sentence for most websites, since it’s much harder to monetize. And we all know the damage Facebook has done. We’re never going to stop fighting for free speech, but in the meantime the best way for turtle riders to fight back is to donate to the cause. Without you people none of this is possible. We love you all.
I grew up reading Barstool Sports (starting in college), I support Dave Portnoy, I admire what he built, and I’m happy he’s filthy rich. With that said Barstool has been terrible ever since he got bought out by the Chernin Group, they hired Erika Nardini to be their CEO, and brought in a bunch of talentless millenial idiots to write blogs for them. I’m pretty much in it for the “Go Prez Go” blogs, and when they go to war with Michael Rappaport, ESPN, and/or Deadspin. Barstool worked for so long because it was authentic. He had a unique voice, a way with words, and he was funny. Now it’s just a bunch of 22 year olds trying to be edgy. Oh, and they’re trying wicked hard to prove they’re not sexist by hiring a bunch of chicks, none of who are funny or original. This video from some chick I’ve never heard of before named Liz has been making the rounds today:

Oh man, that’s so edgy!! She’s a girl AND she likes sports. She’s liked the Yankees since she was 8, even though she’s not from New York apparently.
“I’m a Yankee fan since I was 8 years old.”
Oh OK. So you’ve been a Yankee fan for 9 years now. Congrats on your fanhood. You care.
“I will go to bed tonight peacefully with my 27 God damn championships.”
Whoa, she knows how many rings the Yankees won before she was born. Obviously a HUGE fan.
“Knowing that I will never wake up a God damn Red Sox fan. Fuck you Boston.”
Look guys, she’s like totally into the rivalry. That’s what you’re supposed to do right? Get mad at the other team and say fuck you?
She even wrote a followup to her viral video:
“Me, me, me, me, me, me!!” Look how I’M reacting to this loss. I’M, like so mad. I swear and stuff, that’s how you can tell how emotionally invested I was in this sportball match. I’m one of the guys now right? Saturdays are for the boys…and me?
“Not sure if you guys heard last night but the Yankees lost last night and I did not take it graciously.”
If any of our bloggers wrote a headline like that they’d be fired. No one gives a shit about you. It’s not about you or your alleged fandom. Here’s an excerpt:
That is not my idea of a good time. The guy two rows behind me was crying, sad things ended the way they did. I skipped right over sadness and straight into rage. And you know what? I’m a sore loser. Big time. (Also, I’m a little scared of angry me. Yikes.) Always have been always will be. And when I’m in the dark, deep pit of losing, OF COURSE I’m going to bring up the 27 rings! You cling to what you have and in that moment, that was all I had: the winning, historical past. Because the present was horrendous.
Imagine being so out of touch that you think anyone wants to read a blog about some personality no one cares about defending their own fandom?
I’ve been to Yankee stadium for Red Sox games plenty of times. They’re animals there. It’s the most hostile environment in sports. That’s because the people throwing tacos at you in the Bleachers really, really love their team. They’re a bunch of walking gabagoo stereotypes. This chick isn’t one of them. She’s pretending to be. This is what Barstool Sports has become. Sad.
Of course just read the comments on the blog and you’ll see pretty much everyone is in agreement. It’s actually genius on Portnoy’s part because everyone who commented on the blog, clicked on the blog. He’s built a business model where he hires these terrible diversity hires, his fans hate them, but they click on the blogs for the sole purpose of shitting on her in the comments.
The bottom line is that this is what happens when your company values diversity more than quality content. This steaming pile of garbage.
