PFT Commenter, also known as Eric Sollenberger, serves as a co-host on the Barstool Sports podcast “Pardon My Take” and is also a member of the band Pup Punk. He is recognized for his distinctive commentary on both football and US political matters.

Despite his active engagement in public discourse, Eric has been notably private about his personal life, especially his marriage life. Apparently, the man has already been divorced, much to our amazement.

He Married His Wife In 2011

Eric and his wife Steph tied the knot on September 10, 2011, in a beautiful ceremony at his parents’ house, filled with love, friends, and family.

They had unique wedding elements like a thumbprint tree for guests to sign. Steph’s uncle Mark from Oregon photographed the early moments and the bridal party’s joy.

The day was light-hearted, with Eric and his groomsmen bringing humor to the photography sessions. Despite then-recent monsoon rains, the venue remained perfect.

The decor and setup were a community effort, with flowers from Zoe Sollenberger and styling by friends and family. Further, their wedding cake was made by Evan Baltazar.

A standout moment was the best man’s speech by Eric’s brother, who shared a mix of humor, emotion, and a song for the newlywed couple.

As for their current marital status, details are scarce since Eric and Steph kept a low profile on social media and haven’t been much in the media. But, in 2020, a Reddit user confirmed through a podcast episode that PFT Commenter is still married.

“PFT isn’t divorced; listen to Hard Factor episode from 4/30/2020 @ 65mins; his friends from long before Barstool confirm that he’s married,” a user wrote.

However, in early 2024, another Reddit contribution challenged this assertion, alleging that the couple had been divorced for years. “he has been divorced for years now,” another user wrote on Reddit.

Rise to Fame: A Journey Through Sports and Satire

Born on January 31, 1985, Sollenberger gained fame through his work with Barstool Sports, where his satirical approach resonated with a large audience. In September 2015, he published an e-book titled “Goodell vs. Obama: The Battle for the Future of the NFL.”

He expanded his influence in late 2015 by contributing to discussions on the 2016 U.S. presidential election and making his presence felt during televised Republican debates.

In March 2016, he joined Barstool Sports full-time, co-creating the “Pardon My Take” podcast with Dan Katz. The show quickly ascended to the top of the iTunes “Sports and Recreation” chart.

His trademark lies in his ability to blend humor with sports analysis. This skill led to memorable moments, including his covert attendance at Super Bowl LI’s Opening Night and appearances on ESPN’s SportsCenter.

In January 2020, Eric attempted to become a placekicker for the XFL’s DC Defenders.

On November 18, 2023, he appeared as a celebrity guest picker on College GameDay for James Madison University.
