Barstool Editor Banned From WEEI After Posting Naked Pictures of Brady's 2-year-old Son

Barstool Sports editor David Portnoy was a regular guest on The Dennis and Callahan Show on WEEI — until yesterday, when Portnoy posted pictures of Tom Brady’s naked two-year-old son beneath the wisecracking headline, “Check out the howitzer on Brady’s kid.” Brady’s son was frolicking on the beach along with Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen.Portnoy didn’t take the pictures, but his decision to post them and make cracks about a two-year-old’s endowment was enough to earn the ire of WEEI producer Jason Wolfe, who wrote on Twitter, “For those who have been tweeting at me…No we will not have Portnoy on again. What he did was completely irresponsible. It’s not about whether he was allowed to do it or not. It’s about common decency. And he showed none.”

Portnoy in a video defended himself against the onslaught of negative press, mainly saying that it’s not pornographic since the kid is so young. If you want to see the video, go to Barstool Sports. We’re not linking to it or the pictures. I disagree that his actions weren’t over the line. As soon as you start making reference to a child’s sex organs (with photos), you’ve gone to creepytown. The post attempts to make light of how Peyton Manning’s kids would be so lucky to be so well-endowed, but the humor is grossly outweighed by the inappropriateness of the source material.

Pepsi Gets Back in the Super Bowl Game

Oh good, it’s time to talk about Super Bowl advertisements again.

The USA Today reports that Pepsi will jump back into the ring, promoting Pepsi Max – which is struggling against Coke Zero – with three ads. Last year, the brand chose to go the online route and avoiding splurging on the most-watched game in television history. Mistake.

The brand will offer a reward for consumer-created ads that (synergy alert!) finish high in USA Today‘s Super Bowl Ad Meter. Last year, Snicker’s Betty White ad finished first, followed by the Doritos’ human collar spot.

Fox has sold more than 90 percent of its available slots for the February game, much better than last year when multiple brands opted out due to economic reasons and the network was forced to hold a last-minute sale for its remain inventory.
