Charles Barkley is beloved in this city unlike many others, so when Chuck talks about how he experienced the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory, we are most certainly here for it.
Sir Charles visited Jimmy Kimmel Live and spoke about winning money on the Eagles Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots.
Jimmy asked Chuck just how much money he won betting on the Birds.
“In Alabama, it’d buy a big condo,” Barkley said with a smile. “In L.A., a small guest house.”
That's more than I won.
Charles told a story about how he was in Philly for the NFC Championship Game and stayed downtown, warning Minnesota Vikings fans about our crazy fans.
“It’s a Philadelphia Eagles town by far.”
He also told a story about playing drunk once in a game for the Sixers.
“I have no idea what happened that game,” he said. “I was blasted, not going to lie.”
Thankfully he said that was the only time he played while intoxicated. I'm going to guess he had a few cold ones after the Eagles won the Super Bowl too. Love you, Chuck.
