Chuck is the king of hot takes, and this one about who he is rooting for in the Texas A&M-Alabama game is no different -- It's HOT AS FUCK. Barkley went to Auburn and he is obviously conditioned to hate Alabama, but oddly enough, he told ESPN Chicago's Waddle & Silvy radio show that finds Johnny Manziel so reprehensible that he is willing to bury the bad blood with the Crimson Tide and root for them just this once.
“Hey listen, Johnny Manziel, he’s doing something that I never thought was possible. He’s going to make me root for Alabama this weekend. I thought I would never say those words. Johnny Manziel. I am so close to saying ‘Roll Tide’ — Johnny Manziel is annoying me so much that I am really close to saying ‘Roll Tide.’
They’re [Auburn fans] not going to be happy, but Johnny Manziel, oh my God, the only thing saving Johnny Manziel is Miley Cyrus. I mean, are you kidding me? That’s the only thing.
I just think that Johnny Manziel has done a lot of stupid stuff in the last three or four months.”
For fuck's sake, Chuck. FOR FUCK'S SAKE, have you forgotten about all the stupid shit you've done after the age of 21? It might just be on par with Manziel's recent string of stupidity. However, Miley Cyrus still has both of you beat.
