TNT's Rosalyn Gold-Onwude didn't let Charles Barkley get away with a critique of her wardrobe.
1. Most broadcasters would be in trouble for this, but for Charles Barkley it was just another night at the office. During the NBA on TNT Thursday, Barkley mocked sideline reporter Rosalyn Gold-Onwude for wearing an outfit that he claims was from TJ Maxx. The best part of the clip was Barkley's colleague, Ernie Johnson and Kenny Smith doing everything they can to ignore Barkley and change the subject.
Gold-Onwude did not let Barkley get away with accusation and fired right back.
The "Big and Bigger" line was solid, but Gold-Onwude really scored the TKO with the free donut line. Well done.
2. A year ago, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a devastating back/neck injury that led to spine stabilization surgery. Yesterday, he was doing this.
3. Many thanks to SI.com social media star Gino Zarrillo for passing along Derrick Herny's 99-yard run as called by the legendary Jim Ross.
4. Rams coach Sean McVay received some praise because he was able to rattle off the names of all 11 Bears defensive starters during a press conference this week.
McVay's defensive coordinator, Wade Phillips, decided to mock his boss the next day with this performance.
5. Jay Cutler has a new hairdo that has him looking like Bradley Cooper and Twitter had thoughts.
