Noted & Quoted, the wisdom of Barkley

“First of all, every player has played with gay guys,” [Charles] Barkley told 106.7 The Fan, adding that any player who says he hasn’t is “a stone-freakin’ idiot.”

“It bothers me when I hear these reporters and jocks get on TV and say: ‘Oh, no guy can come out in a team sport. These guys would go crazy.’ First of all, quit telling me what I think. I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play,” Barkley said.

Barkley once mused about running for governor of Alabama. I think he should aim higher.
