*In today’s weird news of the century, Charles Barkley admits to storing Vaseline in his belly button during games.
During an interview on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” the 50-year-old hall of famer said he didn’t want his lips to be crusty, so stored his lubrication in his belly button to stay cute for the cameras.
“The brothers will understand. There’s nothing worse than a black man with big crusty lips,” he admitted. “There’s nothing worse than that. So I couldn’t carry a Chapstick with me during the game so I would pack my navel with Vaseline…and I didn’t tell anyone, but Karl Malone said, ‘Man what are you doing?’ I said, ‘Man, I’m getting some Vaseline out of my navel.’”
Um… maybe he should have kept that to himself.
In the meantime, guess who’s going to be joining the sports commentator box?
Newly retired Ray Lewis is going to be seen with a suit and tie during the next football season.
He’ll chat alongside Stuart Scott, Trent Dilfer and Steve Young for Monday Night Football.
“ESPN is such a big part of how fans watch and experience sports, especially the NFL, so I’m excited to join their team,” said Lewis. I’m ready to bring the same level of passion to this next phase of my life as I brought to the field during my years as a player. I can’t wait to work with my new teammates, many of whom I’ve already known for years.”
