Watch Charles Barkley ride the subway for the first time

Watch Charles Barkley ride the subway for the first time

I've long suggested that there could be a website dedicated solely to documenting everything Charles Barkley says and does. It'd be full of hilarious anecdotes. It'd feature videos of Charles getting ready for his regular appearances on TNT or even better, when he does mundane stuff like rides the subway in New York City for the first time ever.

That Barkley-dedicated website doesn't exist just yet, but thankfully Sports Illustrated tagged along with Sir Charles on his first subway ride and produced some cell phone video of the event.

From Chuck having to figure out how to swipe a MetroCard to get to his conversations with strangers about Auburn/Alabama, the whole thing is a fun diversion.

And Richard Deitsch documented the whole thing with a minute-by-minute play-by-play.

4:27 p.m. Barkley hears a baby crying in the subway car. "I'm going to see the Knicks and Nets so I know exactly how that baby feels," Barkley says. The car erupts in laughter.

Perfect.
