I have learned so much about Charles Barkley since he joined the TNT’s Inside The NBA show, but some things I could have went without knowing. Last night Barkley shared with the world that he used to keep Vaseline in his belly button during games.
Barkley proclaimed he used the Vaseline to prevent chapped lips. While trying to understand his logic, I failed miserably. On one hand I understand you don’t want chap lips, and during the mist of the game unless you leave it on the bench you have no place to store the Vaseline. During my playing days, I am guilty I would keep chap stick in my sports bra. One of the few advantages of being a female is we have extra storage space.
No matter what scenario I think of there is no justifiable explanation to stick a glob of Vaseline in your crusty belly button, while you are running up and down the court dripping in sweat only to dig in there later to apply the grease to onto your lips. That is just down right disgusting. Barkley should have kept that to himself, but remember he has no filter or any shame. Just another day of Charles Barkley being Charles Barkley.
