Want to watch the Sunday's big game with ESPN reporter Adam Schefter? You can, courtesy of Tiki Barber. Remember Tiki's new venture, Thuzio? It's a company through which you can book famous sports people for your birthday party or lunch or whatever at a set price. For $2,000, Victor Green will come to your bar mitzvah…
For nearly two decades, Sports Illustrated has stirred the tea leaves to discern a weekly Sign of the Apocalypse. Deadspin salutes the magazine's ongoing effort to cover the end of times but declines to cede the scoop on the biggest event in world history.
It's been six years since Tiki Barber retired from football, which means we've spent six years watching him desperately try and fail at becoming some kind of relevant media personality. Having washed out of the television business, Tiki is on to much sadder things.
Since Tiki's attempts at joining an NFL team this season appear to have stalled, he's got more time to focus on other things in his life like finalizing his divorce from his wife Ginny and making an honest gal out of 24-year-old Traci Johnson, the former NBC intern who stole his heart two years ago.
Your morning roundup for June 19, the day some sexy finally came out of the Vancouver riots (it starts at 0:45 of this video), and the day we all wish a Happy Father's Day to the appropriate person in our lives.
The Tiki Barber image rehab tour kicks off in earnest (remember, he's planning to play again) with a big Sports Illustrated profile dropping tomorrow. In it, he tells a story of the time he went into hiding in the attic of his agent, Mark Lepselter.
Tiki Barber is unretiring from football today. Because hey, who couldn't use a media whore running back who talks shit out of the locker room and will be 36 by the time the season comes around?
Two days ago, Crushable.com published an odd story written by Traci Johnson, the young blonde thing Tiki took up with after he separated from his pregnant wife (so he says). Readers were not impressed.
The New York Post did some more homework on Tiki Barber and his 23-year-old lady friend by interviewing everyone who has ever known, lived with or served the duo pasta. The question now is who you choose to believe?
Famous people don't just get divorced. They have scandals. Like Tiki Barber who is leaving his wife—who is eight months pregnant (with twins)—for a blonde intern half her age. Now that's a breakup.
Tiki was once hailed by NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker as a "one of those rare personalities who appeals to virtually every audience imaginable." Every audience except a football audience, that is.
Standing in the middle of New York City while a little girl rolls red paint over his crotch, this "Today" show segment pretty much sums up Tiki Barber's post-NFL existence.
We think it's very possible that Tiki Barber might go down in the history books not as a former running back for the New York Giants, but, in fact, as a world-class maker of omelets. And we have a suspicion that he would have no problem with that.
Reader Matthew Ott headed down to the Giants' Super Bowl ticker-tape parade in Lower Manhattan yesterday and found a guy after our own heart. The "uncensored" photo after the jump. Lots of work went into that sign, clearly.
At this point, it's pretty much clear: The New England Patriots might have lost, but the person who comes across the worst in the wake of the upset is clearly Tiki Barber. Pity.
Tiki Barber, from all accounts, seems like a rather charming fellow. He's handsome, smart and obviously talented and comfortable in front of a camera; you don't just fall into a spot alongside Matt Lauer by stuttering and stammering. (This is why CBS went with Katie Couric rather than Eric Dickerson.) Barber's so good…
