Wow, what a situation to be in. Somehow I dont think that Charles Barkley will clear the situation though....

I don't think Charles is supposed to clear up the situation. Phoenix Eddie and he are friends. I suspect he was calling a close friend who might show support for him in a difficult time. Also, Charles might be able to give him some advice on public relations when finding oneself in a difficult situation.

And the guy that thinks he looks like Michael Jordan thought he had problems! I hope they give the Eddie in Phoenix as much coverage to clear his name as they did when there was mistaken identity.

Proving reporters need more than Google.

The mistaken identity is bad, but I can't imagine the pain from having people you thought knew you well as a friend thinking it was you. I guess this is one of those times when you really find out who your real friends are.

Commander Cody, I'm with you. You know who your friends are when things get shady. Hey Cody, I noticed you have said some things about Iraq from time to time. Are you there? If so shoot me an email,

Oh no, I'm afraid I'm a bit too old for this one. Vietnam was my war a long time ago.

'Fast Eddie' has had a shady reputation for a long time. I immediately figured he was the one in this story; as would anyone who distinguishes between the 2 Eddies.

It is sad that we are so quick to judge but, once we have reached the new perception we don't change our minds back to our previous thinking nearly as fast
