Hernia to Barkley: Thank you

Charles_barkley_dunking_the_lakers
Charles Barkley yesterday on Dan LeBatard’s radio show:

?If it wasn?t for guys like myself, all these quote, unquote, sports fans would be listening to Skip Bayless, Jay Mariotti, Mike Lupica – the little midget ? I like ESPN a lot, but they want to dominate the
world."

?I?m not going to let all these losers, like Bayless and Mariotti and Lupica ? they can say what they want to.  I?m gonna say what I want to.  They?re going to deal with it or they?re going to shut the hell up.  I don?t care.?

?ESPN rode all those clowns out there everyday like they?re experts in every sport ? first off, they?re not experts in every sport. Trust me – Jay Mariotti, Skip Bayless, and now, Jemele Hill – they?re
just people giving their opinion. They?re not the law, and they?re not that important. Get that straight.?

You had us at "the little midget," Sir Charles, but if you also called him a washed up Squirrel Glider and mentioned that Mitch Albom’s ears should be used as effective party tarps, we’d forever be indebted to you.

    Fear of clowns is called, “Coulrophobia.”

    I don’t think Charles Barkley has it.
