I’m not saying that Charles Barkley was a bit tipsy when he called Dan Patrick’s show on Friday, but he sounded a little like that friend who’s been hitting the sauce and calls you late at night complaining about his ex-girlfriend. Only Charles was ranting about ESPN’s Skip Bayless. Enjoy.

“Hey Dan, I’ve been watching your show, you’re doing a good job, bro. And I want to tell you the best thing you ever did. You know, because I hate Skip Bayless more than any person in the world. Thank you for giving me an alternative so I don’t have to watch Skip Bayless in the morning. I will always be indebted to you, so I don’t have to watch that a****** Skip Bayless.”


Sorry this is a couple of days old, but I was busy this weekend knitting ill-fitting Christmas sweaters for all of my media enemies. Anyway, Bayless had a Twitter response to Barkley’s rant:

    That’s playing exactly into what Skip wants. He wants attention. Makes outlandish statements that draw attention to himself and his show. Ratings baby. People love to hate him. Kapish?

    lol skip knows where to find a proverb? really…..? lol

    I’m pretty sure he just says outlandish things so people will watch. I think he loves to be hated actually. Personally, I thought he went too far last year with some of the miami heat stuff, so I stopped watching.
