Tiki Barber Not Exactly Sure Where He's Doing His Latest Puff Piece From

Friday, August 03, 2007

Seriously NBC...could you give Tiki Barber anymore easy assignments? Forget Minnesota...we have to send him to Boston!

In his most recent The Today Show sends TB to Fenway Park to discuss it being old and how poorly he did in his batting practice at-bats. The video is below if you care. But that's not why I'm writing this post....no I'm writing to rile up all you Red Sox fans out there. What the video failed to capture was Tiki Barber's horrible reporting earlier in the day, which also aired on the Today Show.

Lucky for us the Don and Mike Show tapes the Today Show everyday, and they caught the clip. Listen for yourself, and let me know the exact moment when you want to smash your computer (You have to listen for a bit...right past the Britney and Obama stuff)...

"Later today this ballpark will be fulled with fans"- TB

That's right Tiki....fulled. And did you hear it Boston? The biggest sacrilege of all....he calls it FenAway Park. That's right...Fenaway Park. As if Boston couldn't hate New York anymore.

God I can't wait for Football Season...you thought last year was bad on this site. I'm going to have a field day this year.

I'm amazed...how does anyone like this guy?

Dressing well and smiling big are considered qualifications...what a himbo.

Not to even mention his football career: had a few good years after fumbling, always calling out the coaches in public, and announcing his retirement in the middle of the season for more attention. What a team player! And people talk about the Hall of Fame with this smoke and mirrors guy?

Stick on this guy and take him to task!

It goes to show the smartest football player is still a complete moron.

I mean, to play that game with those fucking dudes ready to jump on you and hurt you, you'd HAVE to be an idiot. Did anyone ever like that turtle shit when you were a kid when people would jump on you and smother you? ask Ted Ginn. Getting tackled hurts.

And RBs lead the pack, their career is over in less time than it takes Lindsay Lohan to get a DUI.

I saw Tiki on Fox once and he was a like a deer in headlights, a mumbler too.

An overrated football player and an overrated media pundit.

Couple things Teke,

First of all there is nothing you can tell us about FenAway Park that we don't already know.

Second, they scrapped the idea of tearing it down years ago, you know when J. Henry decided to sink zillions of dollars into upgrades like the Monster Seats, new concourses and new right field upper deck seats.

Please stick to something you know, like alienating football coaches and teammates, and leave the other sports to qualified professionals.

I think what Tiki did was cool. He didn't want to not be able to walk normally for the rest of his life, got some cheesecake job with a major news network to do basically nothing but travel and talk.

Who among us wouldn't switch places with him?

Hey, good for him.

No doubt.

but he is now an awful announcer just like Joe Morgan, whom I worshipped growing up.

If Tiki had only played RB and flexed his left arm over and over, he might have more credibility.
