SI's Richard Deitsch accompanied Charles Barkley on the NYC subway today. Relive their adventure in the footage from his iPhone.
Notorious Knicks hater and TNT analyst Charles Barkley took the NYC subway to Brooklyn where he called the Knicks - Nets game with Marv Albert and Steve Kerr on TNT Thursday night. Barkley boarded the C train at Spring street where he told fans that "If you never see me again, tell my family I love them." Upon trying to enter the subway, Barkley hands his MetroCard to a NYC cop who has to instruct Sir Charles on how to swipe the MetroCard in order to gain entry to the subway. After swiping the metro card, the 6' 6" Barkley bangs his head on a sign while trying to enter the turnstile. The naive Barkley then transferred at Fulton street, where he hopped on the 4/5 train to the Barclays Center. The Knicks blew out the Nets by 30 points, 113-83.
I'm pretty sure life-long Jets fan, The Guru, also repeatedly yells "Fuck You" at his TV while flipping it off when he's watching his favorite team struggle on offense every Sunday. How could he or any other Jets fan not?
The guy in this video is the new Fireman Ed. He's the voice of the people at MetLife Stadium when the Jets play. He represents the tortured souls of Jets fans perfectly. He'd would rather get kicked out of the game than have to watch anymore -- sums up life as a Jets fan perfectly right now.
