You've no doubt by now heard about the report from... wait for this one... the National Inquirer quoting an upcoming unauthorized biography of Sarah Palin ( brought it to mainstream knowledge). The Inquirer reported that Rice confirmed a sexual encounter with Palin in 1987. We haven't covered it since Rice hasn't been in the league since 2004 and this has nothing to do with basketball. But since if it's anything about anything, Charles Barkley will talk about it, and since, let's be honest, Charles Barkley is never lacking in entertainment value, we thought we'd pass along Barkley's comments about the whole thing Friday. Let's just say Chuck's a little jealous of Glen's, er... relationship. From Sports Radio Interviews: 
“You know I have a thing for Sarah Palin, I do. I think she’s hot! I wouldn’t vote for her, but she is hot now. I’m talking both. I’ve always said, ‘I’ve got a crush on Sarah Palin.’ I would never vote for her. I always vote democratic because I think you have a better chance of helping poor people if you vote democratic. But, I’ve always had a thing for Sarah Palin. When I read that… Glen Rice is my new hero! He’s my new hero. You know she just moved in my neighborhood and I haven’t had a chance to meet her. I stay in Philadelphia in the summer, and I go back to Arizona when it starts getting cold. That cold is creeping up on me. I’m talking 50 or 60 degrees. So, I’m heading back to Arizona soon and I look forward to meeting Sarah Palin. Hey listen if that story is true, more power to Glen Rice.”

So there you go. Glen Rice is now a hero to the people, or at least to Hall of Fame power forwards and current television studio hosts, in the event that he actually slept with Sarah Palin who isn't running for president and is... what is she doing now, anyway? Also, this happened 24 years ago. 

But there you go. Breaking news.

Is Glen Rice the new Wilt the Stilt or was Wilt there before she was born.  How dumb is all of this?  I always like Charles and his comments but I hope his wife understands his comments regarding Palin.

And the source of this great piece of information concerning Sarah and Glen rice was? This source might not be as reliable as other confirming sources.

I agree with Barkley, Sarah is “hot” She is very cute with a brain. Again like Barkley I have no met the cute lady in person and have a very slim chance of ever meeting her since I am not a celebrity nor do I have any intention of traveling to Arizona, which still would not get me near or in her complex without the risk of going to the local county jail.

Did I mention that she was “Hot” Way to go Sir Charles, you have a good eye for the ladies.

Oh by the way I would vote for Mrs Sarah, as she has some original ideas. Out present leader is on the road to complete bankruptcy of the nation. We have already had a down grade of our credit.

One joke that has been going around about president Obama is that he got elected and has been spending money like a person with a stolen credit card..

I wonder how the Tea Party feels about this one, maybe she will get  the black vote, or at least the black male vote. Glen Rice has done well for himself in the lady department, between Palin and that smoking little spanish chick from real Miami housewives. Listen to Mike Tysons take on the affair, it will have you rolling!
