Barstool Van Talk

Barstool Van Talk starred two hosts cracking jokes in the back of a van and chatting about sports throughout their antics.

But hiding in the shadows during the firestorm behind Hill's suspension and coverage of athlete protests against social injustice was the news that they had signed a deal with Barstool Sports and their show "Barstool Van Talk".

The interview/comedy show, which was briefly hosted by Barstool's Dan "Big Cat" Katz and PFT Commenter, featured Henry Lockwood as a producer.

The cancellation may have been foreshadowed by a statement by the Executive Vice President for Programming and Scheduling, Burke Magnus, who said the comments about Ponder on the Barstool Sports blog were "offensive".

But after just one episode, the network is pulling the plug.

The personalities behind the series and the "Pardon My Take" podcast released a statement expressing disappointment about the news.

Dominant India thrash Malaysia 6-2 in Asia Cup
But the day belonged to Malaysia, as a 59th minute penalty corner goal from Faizal Shaari was enough to play against India Sunday. The goals were scored by India's Harmanpreet Singh, Chinglensana Singh and Ramandeep Singh, while Ali Shan scored for Pakistan.

ESPN and Barstool's show was announced earlier this month.

"Everyone is saying 'ESPN is not cool, ' 'No one is paying attention to ESPN.' They're all paying attention to the Barstools of the world. Why?"

'Effective immediately, I am cancelling Barstool Van Talk.

"While we had approval on the content of the show, I erred in assuming we could distance ourselves from the Barstool site and its content, " said ESPN president John Skipper in a brief statement. "The executives there were put in a box". Portnoy responded by suggesting that the millennial horse had left the ratings barn long ago: "I mean, they're already not watching ESPN anyways". People were not happy about that move in the least bit, taking to Twitter in support of Hill and her honesty and her right to free speech.

It is widely believed that Sam Ponder was the driving force behind ESPN having second thoughts about getting into business with Barstool. We attacked her. She waited for three years to drop revenge on our heads the night before and she got accomplished what she wanted to get accomplished. "From what we heard, there was a mini-uprising". "ESPN needed us more than we needed them", he said, insisting that Barstool was not sexist or racist.

The TV personality said she took a vehicle service to a meeting with ESPN personnel but she found out after the meeting her ride home had been canceled.
