Charles Barkley

SOCCER BORES ME

... I'm Over It

7/14/2014 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

FOX 29 News Philadelphia | WTXF-TV

Good news -- Charles Barkley finally decided to watch soccer for the first time during the World Cup. 

Bad News -- He HATED it. 

Sir Chuck was co-hosting "Sports Extra" with Howard Eskin on FOX 29 in Philly last night when he got brutally honest about his relationship with soccer. 

Barkley admitted he respects the athletes ... but can't handle 90 minutes of scorelessness on a consistent basis ... and basically said he's checking out for the next 4 years. 

There's more funny stuff in the clip -- like the part where Barkley calls Eskin an ugly-faced leprechaun. Don't worry, Eskin gets revenge when he pulls out footage of Charles on the golf course.

Probably because there was no fat girls like in Texas, crispy cream donuts involved.

Charles Barkley doesn't like any sports - he just likes the NBA. He doesn't like basketball - heck he hates college basketball, just the NBA.

If you actually watch the video, there is not one point where Barkley says he hates soccer. He says he respects the players but is not a fan of the sport. He'll watch the world cup again next time. TMZ exaggerating again.
