The Blake Bortles Wikipedia reading club was officially launched on Monday, courtesy of two Barstool Sports employees who recently had Bortles on their highly-rated podcast, Pardon My Take:

“Barstool Big Cat & PFT Commenter deliver the loudest and most correct sports takes in the history of the spoken word. Daily topics, guests, and an inability to tell what the hosts might be doing will make this your new favorite sports talk show. This is a podcast that will without a doubt change your life for the better- guaranteed, or your money back. *Pretend a reggaeton air horn is going off right now*”

The founding of the Blake Bortles Wikipedia reading club was mostly in response to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, who recently founded a book club that he promotes via Twitter. The hosts of PMT were originally members of Luck’s book club, before he shunned them to go on The Ringer’s NFL podcast instead of theirs. Let me remind you that this all is very much real-life, and I’m not making any of this up. Bortles, who has been featured on Barstool Sports several times and considers himself a ‘stoolie’, okay’d the idea for the creation of a Wikipedia reading club.
