Dave Portnoy who is the founder of the popular sports website Barstool Sports; won an incredible charity auction item that is sure to make headlines when and if it happens.
Last month in the height of the Coronavirus pandemic the NFL announced an auction to help raise money. The winner of the auction was to watch a Monday Night Football game in the company of the NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

To put this in perspective on how awesome this is you would have to know the history between Portnoy and Goodell. The two have been at war for a very very long time.
Just last year during Super Bowl LIII Portnoy was kicked out of the stadium and charged with criminal trespassing. The entire episode which has Dave Portnoy in a disguise was captured on camera.
The boot from the Super Bowl wasn’t the only one of Portnoy’s stunts over the years. Back in 2015 when deflate gate was in full swing the lesser known Portnoy protested outside the leagues New York Headquarters.
Dave also heckled the NFL commissioner at Tom Brady’s final court appearance. All of this will not be outdone by the clown shirts that have been made. He also didn’t stop with the shirts. Portnoy printed out 70,000 towels with the Goodell’s face and the clown nose, which were handed out prior to the Patriots’ home opener following the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI win.
So now that the outgoing El Presidente won the auction it will be interesting to see if there was any fine print.
It is also being reported that the cost of this game was upwards of $250,000. That isn’t chump change either. However back when Portnoy made his original bid the cost was a merely $50,000 in comparison.
