Yup, that is a shirtless Charles Oakley. He's just hanging out with a bunch of seemingly college-aged folks at a bar in Vegas. Getting his drink on. And, using his pectoral mucles to make people nervous. Just like old times.
I like that he wore the hat, pulled down - signifying that he is trying to keep this night low-key - but that after a few cocktails he felt it best to take off his shirt. And just put the vibe out.
This image and a few others turned up on Deadspin last week.
I can't help but wonder who Oak is smiling at in this picture and what sort of emotions are going through the alcohol-addled brain of that person. Fear? Lust? Do most people clubbing in Vegas and just done with Final Exams even know who Charles Oakley is? Is he scarier if you recognize him or if you don't?
