Oklahoma City has a new preoccupation.
It’s a bit like the “Where’s Waldo?” craze — except that it involves a tall, outspoken black man.
Yep, Charles Barkley is in town.
Barkley and the rest of the TNT broadcast crew arrived in town Wednesday, and since then, there have been numerous sightings chronicled on all sorts of social media. Charles eating dinner. Charles at the hotel. Charles going for a run. That’s the photo above, posted Wednesday on the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Twitter account, @VisitOKC.
(Teaser Alert: we may have some details soon about an upcoming sighting, so stay tuned!)
Have you seen Sir Charles in OKC? If you have, we’d love to hear your stories and see your pictures. Send ‘em my way either here on the blog or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
