Deadspin's elder statesman, Rick Chandler, caught up with Sir Charles at a celebrity golf outing over the weekend. And Sir Charles never ceases to entertain:
BARKLEY: "When I talked with you on Thursday, and you said your were
blogging my rounds, I didn't know what that was. What's a 'blog?' It
(Note: Barkley is not kidding here.)
BARKLEY: "So when they asked me on television how to describe my
golf game, I told them 'My game is like a blog.' Because I don't know
what a blog is, but it don't sound good."

Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
