Now, first to address the “assault”.  It’s a pretty loose use of the word but if we’re being technical, yes Portnoy was physically assaulted while watching Game 4.

Was the Blues fan being a goon? Of course. Did Portnoy play it up knowing he could turn it into some funny content for his website? Also, of course. With that in mind it’s almost a lock that he returns to Enterprise Center for Game 6.

Barstool Runs on Viral Content

The best thing in the world for Barstool Sports are events like this that send fans and followers rushing to check out their links and posts. Something like this provides a great opportunity for Portnoy to play up the beef and get more clicks, just like he did after the initial incident.

Any opportunity to produce funny material is one that won’t be passed up by the guys at Barstool. Expect Portnoy in attendance and expect the cameras to be rolling at all times.

Portnoy is a Genuine Fan of All Things Boston

Portnoy loves to support Boston teams and even if it weren’t for his obsession with hunting down viral content, he’d likely be in attendance. With a net worth that continues to swell he has more than enough money to travel back and forth between Boston and St. Louis to catch each game live. Being in the building, especially if the Bruins win on home ice in Game 5 and have a chance to win the Stanley Cup, is something he’ll absolutely be up for.

As Portnoy has proven time and time again, if a Boston team can reach some level of success he’s going to try and be part of it. Will he continue attending games once the Patriots, Red Sox, and Bruins’ runs come to a close and the teams are mired in years of mediocrity? Who knows.

The good thing for you is he just needs to attend one hockey game where his team will be in a big time spot on a massive stage. Consider the -160 odds to be some of the best value you’ll ever see and hammer it.

Pick: Yes (-160)
