VIDEO: Charles Barkley vs. Barney the Dinosaur on 1993 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’

In 1993, Charles Barkley hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live (here’s the promo—Nirvana was the musical guest). And he posterized a purple dinosaur. (Godzilla had to cancel at the last minute.)

The one-on-one Barkley on Barney showdown was part of Barkley’s monologue.

“Hey, Barney, thanks for doing this on such short notice” Barkley says at the beginning of the clip.

That’s OK, Charles,” Barney replies. “That’s what caring and sharing are all about!” (Can’t see the video? Try here.)

“It really didn’t matter to me who won,” Barkleys said. “I just wanted to have a good time.”

Bama students vandalized their own campus with Auburn graffiti before the 1953 Iron Bowl

In 1953, a Bama student, either out of self-loathing, or in an attempt to rile his team to victory in the upcoming Iron Bowl, painted not just random doors and alleys of his own campus with Auburn slogans, but Denny freakin' Chimes. So when someone tries to stop you from relieving yourself on the Saban statue at this year's game, just tell them: "I learned it from watching you."
