In a one-on-one sitdown conversation on Monday morning, "El Presidente" and I sat down for what has become our annual Super Bowl week chat.

"It’s a huge week. We have an RV and we have our setup for daily radio shows and podcasts. It's huge for us," Portnoy said.

Every Super Bowl week for the past few years, Barstool has picked a location in the host city and set up a football frat house - a home away from home. This year, for Super Bowl LIII, they are at The Ivy's in the Buckhead region of Atlanta and will be here all week long.
