Barkley slams Andy Reid, Mets on SNL

    Good morning, Feeders! Philadelphia sports fans who stayed up late and watched Charles Barkley, former 76ers “Round Mound of Rebound,” host Saturday Night Live got a special treat during one skit.

    In it, Sir Charles, known for his bluster and bluntness almost as much as his basketball skills, hawks an “app” that helps viewers cut through the bull so common in sports interviews.

    Eagles Coach Andy Reid gets skewered (though not as much as many Eagles fans would like), and so do the Phillies hapless rivals, the New York Mets. Very funny.

    If you enjoyed the skit linked above, here’s the whole episode of SNL, in which Sir Charles acquitted himself quite well.
