Charles Barkley Wants Nothing To Do With Tiger Woods

The days of Charles Barkley and Tiger Woods hanging out appear to be over for good.

“It’s been very frustrating to watch everything that has transpired,” Barkley said Wednesday on ESPN New York 1050′s The Mike Lupica Show, “and getting rid of Steve Williams was probably the last straw for me.”

The TNT announcer hasn’t heard from Woods since the November 2009 incident that turned the golfer’s world upside down.

“You think you’re friends with a guy,” Barkley added. “You talk to him once a week for 15 years. You’re like, this dude is my friend, we do things, we have fun together. I haven’t talked to him in two years and I’m wondering what the hell is going on.” Read more

What We Watched in 2010

Sports Media Watch puts together a list of the 100 most-watched broadcast sporting events of 2010. At the top, not surprisingly, is the Super Bowl. In fact, 16 of the top 20 were NFL games with only the Winter Olympics, the BCS National Championship Game, and game 7 of the NBA Finals preventing the sweet. (Games 5 and Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, which checked in at 74th and 78th, respectively, were not nearly as popular.)

So basically, score a bunch for the NFL.

The cable ratings after the jump. Get ready for some (more) football.
