Quote Of The Week: Charles Barkley

Once again Charles Barkley takes the quote of the week award. Honestly he could probably take it for teh year.

Here's Sir Charles on Kobe Bryant and the aging process from sportsradiointerviews.com. 

“Well he’s older. He’s older now. I’ve said the last year that he’s slowed down. You know, Tim Duncan has slowed down. I mean, listen, Kobe Bryant has been in the league a long time. He’s on my list…I made up a list, and he’s the sixth greatest basketball player ever in my opinion. He’s been a great, great player. But I tell you, the ain’t but two things in life that are undefeated — Father Time and those Las Vegas casinos.”

Ndamukong Suh To Participate In Gumball 3000

When I hear of the Gumball 3000 or Gumball rally, I usually think of something along the lines of "The Cannonball Run". Detroit Lions defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh will be participating in the Gumball 3000 to promote a new video game by Ubisoft called "Driver." 

I for one would not lik Suh to participate in such a race, even though it's all in fun. That's just my biased opinion as a Lions fan. On the other side of the coin he does have to make a living since he's not being paid due to the NFL lockout.

Suh is looking forward to the race.

"Being able to drive at a high speed and not get in trouble for it is great. When it comes to driving on the street, if the speed limit is 65, I might go 73, but in this race I'm going to go as fast as I can while at the same time being safe. My health and my co-pilot's health is the most important thing to me. One of my good friends who plays for the Colts is going to be in there with me, Cody Glenn, so we're going to go out there and enjoy it and split the driving duty."  

Happy trails to those two as they embark on a new challenge. Just keep it safe.

No Bull

Still a Cincinnati Bengal at the moment, wide receiver Chad Ochocinco is backing up his Twitter bravado. Ochocinco has accepted an invtiation from Professional Bull Riders chief operating officer Sean Gleason.

Ochocinco will pocket $10,000 if he rides a bull, if he stays on for eight seconds he gets a ne Ford F-150 and gets to rename the bull. That's a tall order for Ochocinco who also practiced a little soccer Major League Soccer's Sporting Kansas City.

This is definitely a task that's easier said than done, but if anyone is up to the challenge it's Ochocinco. He has probably been the busiest, most interesting player during the NFL lockout.
