Editor’s Note: This blog was published prior to me changing the website title from Barstool Pittsburgh to Peep’s Burgh.

Last night after work, I casually opened the Barstool Sports app on my phone to read some of the blogs that were posted during the day. As I was scrolling away at what stories to read, one particular blog captured my attention right away – El Pres’s post titled, “Recapping Day 1 Of My Adventures With The Si Swimsuit Models”. All week on The Rundown, Pres kept talking about how he was heading down to Houston for the weekend with the SI Swimsuit models so I figured this would be some great content. What could possibly go wrong when Pres tries to do pizza reviews with some of the hottest chicks on the planet that probably haven’t eaten pizza in like six years?

Before I pressed play on the audio clip from yesterday’s Barstool Radio show, I scrolled down the page to check out some of the Instagram pictures/videos and Snapchats from the night before. As I was finishing up watching all of the videos he uploaded, I found myself at the end of the post. That’s when I came across Pres’s own tweet that he screenshotted.

Initially, I thought to myself, “Hmm.”


Aly Raisman hates Pres? What could this be all about? Pres’s a Boston guy. Aly’s a Boston girl. He normally roots hard for his own people. Did he do something last night or sometime in the past to piss her off? Sounds prett-ay, prett-ay odd to me. I thought about that for a solid 30 seconds (or about how long my attention span is), and then I scrolled back to the top of the page to listen to the audio recap.

So I’m listening to Pres’s recap, and he immediately starts talking about the girls that hate him and the few that like him. Funny enough, one of the top five hottest chicks in the world (in my opinion), Nina Agdal, absolutely despises Pres. I found that hilarious. It was also hilarious to listen to him talk about the models that turned down pizza reviews. Then, it got about three minutes into the recap when Pres says, “Aly Raisman absolutely fucking hates us. I must’ve done something personal to her that I don’t know about…” He proceeded to explain about how Aly absolutely refused to do a pizza review with him until he started mocking her about it. He then finished the story about his encounter with Aly by saying, “I can guarantee you this. I’ve done something to Aly Raisman or somebody has that there’s just something that sticks out to mind that she just despises about [Barstool].” (You can listen to the whole clip about Aly Raisman from 2:55 – 3:55.)

For the second time, I thought to myself, “Hmm.” Only this time with an audible “Hmm.”


Could this be even more evidence that proves Aly Raisman’s read my criticism about how her boyfriend’s a scrub? Could this really be? Aly Raisman literally despises El Pres because of me and my stupid posts about her douchebag boyfriend?! I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that this is probably definitely not the reason she hates the #KingOfTheBeach, and I’m perfectly fine with that. Simple logic entails that she doesn’t want any affiliation with Barstool because she doesn’t want to tarnish her squeaky clean image in any way. After all, she’s a role model for a lot of young girls. But if the former proposition is the real reason, then HOLY FUCK. I don’t think I can believe that Aly Raisman’s read a couple (somewhat negative) posts from a blog (THAT’S NOT EVEN AFFILIATED WITH BARSTOOL IN THE FIRST PLACE), and now she hates all of Barstool’s guts.

Beyond insanity!

Let’s all hope that Pres unravels more evidence as to why Aly really hates Barstool this weekend. Until then, the possibility is still alive and well.
