Sean Hannity weighed-in Monday on NBA legend Charles Barkley’s less-than-stellar golf skills; saying the sports superstar has “one of the worst” swings he’s ever seen “in his life.”
“I’m not the greatest vacation taker in the world. I can’t just shut-off the switch in my head… I actually played golf for a few days. I’m never going to be good at golf. That’s the bottom line, I just have to accept my place,” said Hannity.
“I had a golf pro teaching me how to play and I took lessons. Any sport if you’re going to be decent you have to learn the fundamentals,” he added.
“Have you seen Charles Barkley’s swing? He has the worst swing I’ve ever seen in my life,” Hannity said.
“I get to play with great players and great athletes so that makes it special, and I’ve developed some great relationships, like with Kevin Nealon,” Barkley said. “I don’t really have any goals, man. I’d love to be better, but if I get out there and smoke a couple cigars, I’m good. . . .It’s not like it’s the worst thing in the world, sucking at golf.”

GAME ON: Supreme Court STRIKES DOWN National Ban on Sports Gambling
The Supreme Court of the United States struck down a national ban on sports gambling Monday; saying legislators went too far when they barred the practice nationwide back in 1992.
According to the New York Post, the court voted 7-2 to dismantle the law that prohibited businesses from engaging in “sports gambling” throughout the United States without specific, government-backed licenses in places like Atlantic City, New Jersey and Nevada.
“Just as Congress lacks the power to order a state legislature not to enact a law authorizing sports gambling, it may not order a state legislature to refrain from enacting a law licensing sports gambling,” wrote Justice Samuel Alito.
Any state in the country is now able to decide for itself whether to permit sports gambling or outlaw the practice entirely.
New Jersey brought the case before the Supreme Court last summer; arguing the nationwide ban hurts businesses throughout the state, particularly casinos and racetracks.
AMERICA'S GAME? NFL REJECTS Pro-Veteran SUPER BOWL Ad
The National Football League continued to reach new lows on Tuesday; flat-out rejecting a one-page advertisement in the NFL’s official Super Bowl Program that urged all Americans to “Please Stand” during the performance of the national anthem, reports USA Today.
The ad -submitted by pro-veteran’s organization AMVETS- urged all those attending the big game to remain standing as the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ rings out inside the arena. The material was ultimately rejected by the league for violating the NFL’s commitment to avoiding “political statements” in the program.
“The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told USA Today.
“It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement. The NFL has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game,” he added.
The NFL’s been struggling to come to terms with a disastrous 2017 postseason following months of players “taking a knee” during the performance of the national anthem. President Trump rocketed the issue into the spotlight after he called for a full-fledged boycott of the NFL until league owners demand their athletes remain standing during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
