Charles Barkley has always been one of my favorites. I think it's just in the way he says Alabama that melts me. Or that he was called the Crisco Kid in college. Anyway, him getting in trouble on New Year's Eve is kind of an old story at this point but his excuse exemplifies why he's known to legions of fans as Sir Charles. Only a gentleman would risk his livelihood by racing to the aid of a young girl stranded and waiting on a street corner. A chivalrous act without question. He shouldn't be denied a livelihood just because he ran a stop sign and was drunk. Mind you, it was no ordinary situation. Circumstances were extenuating. The damsel in distress had "given him a 'blow job' one week earlier," which the former NBA star described as "the best one he had ever had in his life."
I'm tired of TNT and T-Mobile dissin' on Sir Charles. This man has committed no crime other than driving drunk, which I am sure some community service can take care of, but his reputation has been unduly sullied by a pleasant memory and a poorly placed stop sign. Sir Charles for Governor!
