It's not easy being the all-time leading rusher in Giants history. Nor is it easy being the guy who retired from the team the year before they won the Superbowl, opting instead to have a subpar career as a talking head, leave his pregnant wife for a 23 year-old former NBC intern, and see his former teammate Michael Strahan--who I'm gonna go out on a limb and say, unlike Tiki, wasn't the valedicatorian of his high school class--land the hosting gig on Live! with (now Kelly and Michael).
Not easy at all.
Do you remember when Medllin bombed and Ari was freaking out that Vinny Chase was gonna have to do Montell Williams-esque "get cash now!" informericals for the rest of his career? Is this the retired athlete equivalent?
UrbanDaddy Enterprises is a lifestyle media company, focused on the intersection between hyper-relevant content and digital innovation. And, apparently, renting Tiki Barber out:
"You’re getting Tiki Barber—the NY Giants all-time leading rusher and owner of one of the greatest names in the history of names—for your next game of flag football. Or basketball. Or kickball. Or pretty much whatever sport/gentlemanly activity you can think of. Because having a three-time Pro Bowl-er on your team definitely qualifies as a Perk."
The catch? Well, you can't be more than 25 miles outside the NYC area, and you've gotta fork over the small price of $1,950. Because, ya, know, the guy who once had "frequent judging sessions on Iron Chef America." can't be doing no favors to us common folk.
