Barstool founder beefs with CBJ mascot on Twitter

Unrepentant misogynist and noted alumnus of a college that hasn’t beaten Ohio State at football since the stone age, Barstool sports founder Dave Portnoy can now add “troller of hockey mascots” to his impressive list of accomplishments.

A Twitter war between Portnoy and Stinger (the mascot of the Columbus Blue Jackets) was initiated on Wednesday, when Portnoy decided to sound off following the Jackets game three victory over the Boston Bruins:

Not content to let it go down like that, Stinger reminded Portnoy to stay in his lane (specifically, reviewing pizza and not trying to cover hockey):

Having just been thoroughly owned by an anthropomorphic bee in a hockey jersey, Portnoy decided to double-down by challenging Stinger to a fight. That’s right, a grown man challenging a fictional, fuzzy bee character to fisticuffs.

Sadly for Portnoy, Stinger once again had a sick burn locked and loaded:

The exchange went on from there, but posting any more of this cringe-worthy tete-a-tete is simply too embarrassing. Needless to say, CBJ nation aided Stinger in the cause of dragging Portnoy into oblivion, while Portnoy himself clearly lacks the self-awareness to realize a multi-tweet rampage against a mascot is not a great look.

Way to hold it down for your team, Stinger! The CBJ face the Bruins tonight in game four of the second round of the playoffs at Nationwide Arena.

Go Jackets!

No butts about it, Ohio raises smoking age to 21

In a move that nicotine-addicted members of Gen-Z are sure to find totally “un-lit,” state lawmakers have raised the legal age for tobacco sales to 21.

The bill, which passed as part of the new state budget, would have included a provision exempting people who turn 18 before October 1 from the new restrictions—but Governor Mike Dewine vetoed that portion of the law.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Products such as cigarettes, rolling papers, vaping products and chewing tobacco are now only available for legal sale to those 21 and up.

Sorry, kids. You’ll just have to wait a few more years to start wasting money on products that damage your health in countless ways!
