Class move, Charles.

He is a good man.

carjacker while selling fruit at a fruit stand

That sounds like a very entrepreneurial carjacker.

Good move Charles

So a runaway car plowed into a fruit stand?  I thought that was just a cheesy action movie cliche.

/ was there also a giant pane of glass involved as well?

Turrible. Just turrible.

Charles Barkley isn't a bad guy. He's not the smartest guy and he knows it. He's made some dumb mistakes and he knows it. But he's not a bad guy and his offering to do this isn't a surprise to me at all.

I don't think the sappy tag is appropriate, but then again I don't know which one would be best suited.

You wouldn't happen to be a lady from San Antonio would you?

I'm not surprised by this from Charles.

Sad? Not that Chuck did this, but the other thing.

Chuck grew into being a role model. He wasn't ready in his twenties, but he totally got there as he got older.

That's chicken feed to him, but it's still a nice thing to do.
 
2014-07-29 07:51:27 AM  
You always know where you stand with Charles and that is why it is easy to forgive him for doing some really stupid things.

Honesty is very refreshing.  That is why the TNT NBA show is the only pre/post game show worth watching in my opinion.

Good on ya, Chuck.

It is that thought, not the price tag, that counts.

The man has a big heart. Sometimes it overrides his brain and his mouth gets him into trouble, but he's got a big heart, and there is no denying that.

You don't just steal a car, that's a recipe for disaster.  Turrible, turrible, crazy knucklehead turrible.

So tired of seeing stories about kids getting killed by morans. I freaking fear for my kids.

Nice gesture, Chuck.

Charles is really a man of simple tastes who doesn't always make the correct judgement. So, he happens to enjoy the services of ladies of the evening and says things that can't sound anything but just dumb. But he's a good guy.

Plus he beat the shiat out of Barney. I've always liked Barkley, he's that big guy who's a little slow but has your back in a bar fight.

I like his honesty and that he speaks his mind. It's refreshing in a society where everyone says one thing but means and thinks the other. And you know what, the ladies from SA are probably mostly fat. Embrace your fatness, America.

I wasn't trying to give you crap.  Barkley is known not to be liked in the San Antonio area though.

Say what you will but the man is definitely multi-faceted.  I mean, paying for the funerals WHILE selling fruit at a fruit stand.  That is simply awesome.

This. He's had some moments where thinking before talking would have been wise.

But beyond that, he seems like a good dude.

A lot of times?  So you are saying poor parents are now offing their own kids in hopes of paid funerals from the esteemed Mr. Barkley?
