(Updated at the bottom)
Charles Barkley called into Jim Rome is Burning yesterday and admitted he was "drepressed" from listening to the so-called experts on ESPN, who prompted the round mound to switch his bet on the Super Bowl from the Giants to the Patriots.
That's more than I make in a whole month!
**UPDATE** via the great SPORTSbyBROOKS, we learned that Barkley "only" lost $100,000 on the game (well, I'm assuming it's $110,000 if you factor in the vig). In typical gambler fashion, he equated not betting the Giants on the money line (4/1) as a loss. So he didn't actually lose 400k, he just thought he was supposed to win it. Which is basically a loss in degenerate gambler-speak. (yeah, I speak it fluent)
Context is a mutherfucker.
