LOOK: ESPN reporter unfairly mocked for his unusual Joe Montana collectible

During his legendary career, Joe Montana earned the nickname “Joe Cool”.

Yet this ESPN reporter somehow is being viewed as anything but cool for obtaining a unique keepsake of the former Notre Dame quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Fame member.

Montana guided Notre Dame to the 1977 national championship and captured four Super Bowl titles with the San Francisco 49ers.

For an undisclosed amount, ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell purchased the check that Montana used to pay for his apartment at Notre Dame during his sophomore year.

Wow.

There’s plenty of people out there with signed jerseys, helmets and other memorabilia from “The Comeback Kid’ but this is on a personal level that’s absolutely unique.

However, Twitter users weren’t bashful in letting Rovell have an earful regarding his Montana keepsake.

Sorry but the Internet is totally wrong on this one and you can deposit that right to the bank.

Do you agree, Notre Dame fans?
