With Charles Barkley is getting ready to make his return to the air Thursday night and expressing remorse for his drunken driving arrest, we thought it would be appropriate to add to the Barkley redemption tour in our own, belated, way.
A good friend of the three idiots Ryan Ritchie now lives and works in Florida and his place of employment is one of the sponsors of the Barkley, Bean, Bryant, and Friends golf event. Andy Bean and Brad Bryant of the Champions Tour are from Lakeland Florida, and Barkley has made an appearance for all four years the event has taken place. In doing so, Sir Charles has helped raise $725,000 for the youth golf facility.
So while in no way do we condone drinking and driving - and we especially don't condone telling the cops you are on your way to score a blow job after you've been pulled over, it's also fair to note Barkley does a lot of charitable things that aren't well publicized and is very giving of his time. We also hear he swears up a storm, which is OK by us. We're looking forward to him getting back on the air telling us how tur-a-ble some things are.
Below is Ryan and Chuck. One of the amazing things about the above article is that it notes Barkley has lost 30 pounds......so a little unsolicited advice Charles - get a DD and keep doing those push aways....from the table.
