Update: TNT Pregame Show Will Be Moved Inside Following Fans' Run-In With Barkley

TNT has confirmed that the Tuesday’s Game 4 pregame show will be moved indoors following a contentious scene between fans and TNT analyst Charles Barkley during Sunday’s broadcast, when Barkley flipped off hecklers and one fan threw a towel at the outspoken Barkley.

“We are going to go inside,” a network representative told the Sun Sentinel, citing the logistical difficulties of such an open-air broadcast.

Barkley, speaking on WQAM Monday afternoon, appeared to welcome the confrontational approach.

“You know those people can yell and scream but they don’t have the hair on their (butt) to grab me,” he said. “They don’t have enough hair on their (butts) to walk up to me man to man and say, ‘Let’s do this.’

“All that yelling and screaming just makes me laugh, man.”

Barkley found Sunday’s scene amusing.

“They were telling me I suck,” he said. “They were telling me I never won a championship. Like, ‘Come on, give me something better than that, dude.’

“I always laugh at that statement, ‘You didn’t get a ring. ‘I’m like, dude, you work at McDonald’s. My life’s a lot better than yours. You relax.’ ”

Really, Charles? Making fun of people for working at McDonald’s? Undignified comment coming from the Round Mound of Rebound.

Atlanta Thrashers Not On The Radar Of The AJC

How big of a news story is the Atlanta Thrashers relocating to Winnipeg?

Not big enough to bump the Atlanta Braves, who got swept by the Arizona Diamondbacks, from the lead story on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution website.

It’s been real, Atlanta. Enjoy Winnipeg, Evander Kane.

Heat-Bulls Game #2 Scores 7.4 Overnight Rating

Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals drew a 7.4 overnight rating Wednesday night on TNT. That overnight rating ties Sunday’s 7.4 overnight, which was the biggest cable TV audience for an NBA game.

Ratings are up 30 percent from Game 2 of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals between Boston and Orlando.

And in case you’re wondering if the city of Cleveland is interested in this series, 11.4 percent of the local households watched – - the third-highest rated market behind Chicago (24.6 percent) and Miami (22.4 percent).

 

Bruins announcer shouts at Habs player to “get up!”

Bruins announcer Jack Edwards makes no bones about rooting for his team. And when an opposing player takes a hit and — to Edwards’ thinking, anyway — lays down and tries to draw a penalty, that kind of gamesmanship will get the horns. Watch and listen as Edwards yells at the Habs’ Roman Hamrlik (best name in NHL history) to “get up!” after Hamrlik takes what Edwards consider a perfectly clean hit from the Bruins’ Michael Ryder.
