Charles Barkley drops “about 400,000″ 100k on the Super Bowl

(Updated at the bottom)

Charles Barkley called into Jim Rome is Burning yesterday and admitted he was "drepressed" from listening to the so-called experts on ESPN, who prompted the round mound to switch his bet on the Super Bowl from the Giants to the Patriots. 

Observe:

Four Hundred-Thousand?!!!??!

That’s more than I make in a whole month!

**UPDATE** via the great SPORTSbyBROOKS, we learned that Barkley "only" lost $100,000 on the game (well, I’m assuming it’s $110,000 if you factor in the vig).  In typical gambler fashion, he equated not betting the Giants on the money line (4/1) as a loss.  So he didn’t actually lose 400k, he just thought he was supposed to win it.  Which is basically a loss in degenerate gambler-speak. (yeah, I speak it fluent)

Context is a mutherfucker.
