It’s me. Walk Daddy. Walk Bags. Brandon Fuckin’ Walker.
My life took a dramatic turn on April 10, when Dave Portnoy found me while scouting hundreds of gambling Periscope videos and immediately offered me a job because of my charisma and talent. Fast forward four months later, and I’m sitting in Barstool HQ trying to figure out how to avoid looking like an idiot.
Naturally, you have tons of questions for Barstool’s craziest hire of 2019.
So at 1 p.m. ET today, I’ll be doing an AMA at barstoolgold.com/walker. Come ask me anything you can think of, and please sign up for Barstool Gold so my kids can have shoes this fall.
To prep for this event, here are some random facts you don’t know about me yet. So you can ask about them or something else, I really don’t give a shit.
