Posted by Bob Biscigliano in Charles Barkley thinks with his johnson and has an awful golf swing, NBA on TNT
Sir Charles Barkley was arrested on New Year's Eve in Scottsdale, Arizona for driving under the influence. My question, after I heard the facts was, "under the influence of what?" From what I understand, it sounds like he wasn't under the influence of alcohol, but in fact, under the influence of Sir Jr.
According to reports, when he was pulled over, he told the police officer that he was on his way to receive fellatio from some random breezy (not necessarily in those words). To me, that sounds a lot like thinking with the wrong head. If I was Dick Bavetta, that would peeve me off.
Anyway, as it turned out, he was charged for a DUI for driving while under the influence of alcohol and I haven't heard anything else about his alleged intention to cheat on Bavetta. He was breathalyzed at a BAC of .149 which is nearly twice the legal limit. Barkley, as a result, took a personal leave from TNT to essentially figure his shit out.
It was announced earlier this week that Barkley has in fact "figured it out" and is ready to return to TNT on Thursday, after over a month's absence. In what has been a week of what has seemed like an awful game show called, "Analyze the Apology," Barkley also apologized for his stupid actions.
"It was my bad, no excuses," said Barkley in an interview with TNT. (( Now, if only A-Rod could have been so nonchalant in his interviews. Then again, Barkley doing his apology with someone from TNT would probably make him feel a little more comfortable than having a PR group force him into an itchy blue sweater or having 100 sets of eyeballs and 50 microphones in front of his face, in front of all his teammates.))
Barkley went on to say some really good things about how he deeply regrets getting behind the wheel after drinking, he never wants to do that again, and his actions were "unacceptable" and turrible.
Personally, the only thing I think is absolutely unacceptable is his golf swing. Is he joking with that pause? I don't know how he can possibly take himself seriously with that. Oh well, TNT and fans will be happy to have him back tomorrow night.
