I like Charles Barkley. I like him a lot. For a lot of reasons. I like that he speaks his mind. I like that he never seems to take life too seriously. I like that he’s funny. I like that he’s very good at his TNT job. I really like that he hates Alabama. Most of all, I like that he genuinely cares about the places that have made him the person he is: Leeds, and Auburn, and the state of Alabama. So many of our athletes have never looked back. Chuck has never stopped looking back.
Just because the frontman for the rockabilly, punkabilly, psychobilly, whateveryouwannacallitbilly legends was making last minute tour arrangements for a stand-in to replace his drummer who was marooned by the Nashville floods didn’t stop TWER from picking his brain about rock ‘n’ roll.
Or about Auburn. Duh.
