As you probably know, Charles Barkley went to Auburn. Like most other Tigers, he is not very fond of Alabama. Barkley is also one of the most outspoken television analysts in sports, which is why it comes as no surprise that he wore a bandage and put fake blood on his head on the set of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” Thursday night to poke fun at the recent Alabama player arrests. “Ernie, you’re not gonna believe this,” Barkley said to co-host Ernie Johnson. “Being the Auburn guy that I am, I wanted to be first class. I went down to the University of Alabama to congratulate the Crimson Tide on winning a BCS Championship and I got mugged. I got mugged in Tuscaloosa, Ernie, and my credit cards are missing.” Barkley was then told to “leave the kids alone” by his colleagues. “Oh it’s my fault they buggin’ people?” he replied. While the charade was simply Chuck being Chuck, the incident hardly seems like a laughing matter. As the student who was reportedly “badly beaten” by four Bama players told The Crimson White, the mugging was allegedly violent and excessive. Nevertheless, we don’t expect Charles to be able to resist. Hey, it’s probably not the worst thing he’s said since becoming an analyst.
