Tiki Barber Gets Manhandled By Rulon Gardner

Thursday, August 14, 2008

I'm still not exactly sure what Tiki Barber does for NBC outside of Sunday Night Football. The guy just shows up randomly on various NBC networks throughout the day and is made to do weird stuff.

Well apparently part of his job description entails having a gold medal winning wrestler picking him up over his shoulder and carrying him around the set. Via Deuce of Davenport....



I love the look on Tiki's face when Tamron Hall says, "but let him pick you up." You could almost see him thinking for a second. "Oh come on....well....I like my job so okay." I guess that's a good way to promote Olympic Wrestling, but couldn't have Gardner gone ahead and slammed him to the ground?

Did Rulon Gardner eat Mark Mangino?

Speaking of wrestling did you see the guy that walked off the medal podium and threw his bronze medal to the ground in disgust over the judges. Really classy.

I'll tell you why Rulon Gardner didn't throw Tiki to the ground (even though he probably deserved it), we Mormons don't roll that way.

i was actually watching this live and was offended at how terrible the quality of this broadcast was. between the editing errors and informal nature of tiki barber and the woman he was co-hosting with, it was terrible.
